Meeting Description:

Workshop on Stance in Discourse: Functional, Typological and Diachronic Perspectives 
May 7-9, 2012
Hong Kong Polytechnic University

In celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Department of English proudly hosts a workshop on Stance and Discourse to be held on May 7-9, 2012. This workshop is the second in a series of workshops on Stance Phenomena, with the first workshop held in July 2011 and the third scheduled for Sept 2012. 

Research on stance (i.e. the speakers' encoding of their source of information, value judgments, degree of commitment, personal feelings, attitude, etc.) is gaining increasing attention in recent years. The objective of this workshop is to explore stance marking in different languages and different social domains, in particular public discourse in political, media, healthcare, business and service encounter settings, in addition to informal conversations at home and in the workplace. 

Registration is free for every participant, and lunch and coffee breaks are included. 

Call for Papers:

Among the questions to be addressed are the following: 

(a) What do stance markers do? 
(b) How do they interact with each other? 
(c) What is their origin and how do they evolve? 
(d) How are they used in different languages, text types and discourse settings?
(e) What is the pragmatic motivation for their usage?
(f) How are they modeled in different theoretical frameworks?

Potential contributors are encouraged to submit abstracts on the above or closely related topics to Abhishek Kumar at egakumar at inet.polyu.edu.hk. 

Deadline for abstract submission: April 10, 2012
Notification of acceptance: April 20, 2012
Registration by May 1, 2012
