Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics 

Meeting Description: 

The European Center for Linguistics (EZS), a co-operation between the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg and the Institute for German Language in Mannheim (IDS), is advertising 45 places for participants at the Winter School “Linguistic approaches to conflicts in European language areas.  Corpus - pragmatics – controversial”.  The Winter School, which is kindly supported by Volkswagen Foundation, is taking place at the German Department of the University of Heidelberg from the 18 to 23 March 2013. The participants will be dealing with the general topic of 'conflict linguistics' in workshops and presentations by renowned referents like Guus Extra, Johannes Schwitalla, Hans Goebl and Arnulf Deppermann amongst others.

Conflicts and their resolution are inherent in our daily life and our increasingly interconnected existence. From the day-to-day controversies to the intricate processes of the European Union, we struggle to resolve our differences. Language is intimately involved in all conflicts and their resolutions. Most conflicts arise and are communicated via language.  Likewise, language is the medium par excellence to arrive at their most elegant solutions. Thus, we valiantly strive 'to find the right word' or 'to use the correct language'. Indeed, we observe that, 'it´s not just what is said, but how it is communicated'. Our facility in utilizing language to penetrate social-cultural barriers reflects our progress as a species, and underlies any legitimate claim a society has to true knowledge and power. To understand and to resolve our conflicts, we need to know and to promulgate the rules and routines of linguistic communication. As linguists, we have much to contribute to the analysis and resolution of modern day conflicts on both 'basic' and 'applied' levels. With our social-symbolic models, we have the tools that can describe the communicative assumptions that are at the core of a controversy, and then to guide further analyses. Thereafter, our strategies to resolve current differences and to avoid future ones flow directly from our linguistic models.

Das Europäische Zentrum für Sprachwissenschaften (EZS), eine Kooperation zwischen der Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg und dem Institut für Deutsche Sprache in Mannheim, schreibt 45 Plätze zur Teilnahme an der Winterschule „Linguistische Zugänge zu Konflikten in europäischen Sprachräumen. Korpus - Pragmatik – kontrovers’aus. Die Winterschule findet vom 18. bis zum 23. März 2013 im Germanistischen Seminar der Universität Heidelberg statt. In Workshops und Vorträgen, die von renommierten Referentinnen und Referenten (u. a. Guus Extra, Johannes Schwitalla, Hans Goebl, Sylvia Kalina und Arnulf Deppermann) geleitet werden, setzen sich die Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer mit dem Rahmenthema „Konfliktlinguistik' auseinander.

- An abstract about the current research project (about 1000 characters)
- A motivational statement

Please send these documents via email to the administration office (luth at ezs-online.de).  Your application should reach us by the 15 February 2013 at the latest. The participants will be selected by the Winter School’s hosts and initiators Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Ludwig M.

Programme und methods:

The talks and workshops are held over several days and will cover the theoretical basics and methods for a linguistic analysis of different settings (from a conversation to transnational discourses). The focus is on the current discussion about the divergence and the complementarity of the different methodological approaches within linguistics: qualitative analysis of conversations and texts as well as quantitative corpus analysis with regard to the central levels of the language system.

On the afternoon of day 1 (18 March 2013) the participants will present their current research projects in a poster session and in the evening the Winter School opens officially with the presentation “Responding to increasing linguistic diversity in multicultural Europe” by Prof. Guus Extra in a festive atmosphere. On Tuesday (19 March 2013) several presentations will introduce the participants to the general topic, which will be discussed in more detail on days 3-5 (20 to 22 March 2013) in workshops. On day 5 (22 March 2013) the results of the workshops will be presented and evaluated. The Winter School will end on the morning of the 23 March 2013.

The complete programme as well as the abstracts of each presentation and workshop can be found on the homepage:
