Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Pragmatics; Sociolinguistics 

Call Deadline: 14-Jan-2011 

Meeting Description:

The focus of 'Dialogue under Occupation V' is on ways of communicating in and about areas of the world confronting occupation. Engaging in 'dialogue' under occupation does not mean that the less powerful or powerless are accepting the occupation in any way, shape, or form, but that people are willing to confront their occupiers in an effort to be recognized as having equal human rights, including the ability to make autonomous decisions about how they should live and pursue their own definition of happiness. However, 'under occupation', these rights are undermined by the power differential between the occupier and the occupied.

We welcome professionals working in applied linguistics, pragmatics, and discourse analysis. 

Call for Papers:

As a result, if dialogue under occupation is to succeed in overturning injustice, circumstances must be created for the occupied to speak and act against occupation. It is within this space for action that we welcome presentations from activists, academics, and the general public for the forthcoming conference in Okinawa in August 2011.

For all proposals, send an abstract of 250-300 words and a separate cover sheet including your name and organizational affiliation by January 14, 2011


Please identify which of the following four strands best relates to your presentation.

Enactment: The domains wherein the politics and policies of occupation are enacted, realized through institutions attributed with and exercising power over other institutions and the public (e.g., governments, religious organizations, education departments and agencies).

Transaction: The domains wherein information about policies is reproduced, disseminated, endorsed, and/or challenged in an effort to inform (or misinform) the occupied and the occupiers (e.g., media sources, schools, churches).

Reaction: The domains wherein daily life under occupation occurs (e.g., the community, the workplace), loci where positioning of the 'self' vs. the 'other'—ingroup, outgroup, and/or intergroup status—transpires, and where historical narratives of occupation are revisited.

Resolution: The locus of peacemakers and peacekeepers, those who would peaceably resist occupation and find ways to resolve conflict, as well as those who advocate resignation, acceptance, and coexistence.
