Meeting Description:

Interpersonal Pragmatics of Social Interaction in Chinese

It is well established that research on Chinese language needs to be given increasing attention due to the growth in political, economic and cultural interactions between Chinese speakers and speakers of other languages. There have been numerous studies of social interactions in English and other languages, but a limited amount of research on social interactions in Chinese to date. Building on the panels on Chinese discourse and interaction and identity as resource in Chinese discourse that were held at the 11th and 12th International Pragmatics conferences respectively, this panel will focus on the issues of interpersonal pragmatics, including im/politeness, affiliation/disafiliation, face, humour, social practices and so on, specifically drawing on interactional data arising in either institutional and non-institutional settings. The aim of this panel is to bring together scholars who work in this area to explore and discuss the ways in which the Chinese speakers manifest themselves in their interpersonal practices in interactional settings. The hope is thus to gain comprehensive, socio-cultural insights into the pragmatics of Chinese interpersonal interactions.

Call for Papers:

We welcome a variety of analytical and methodological approaches that address the above-mentioned issues. If you would be interested to participate in this panel, please send us your abstract (250-500 words, no references included) to Wei-Lin Melody Chang, m.chang at griffith.edu.au by 15 September 2014. After being reviewed by the panel organisers, the panel contributions will have to be sent to the conference organiser individually by 15 October 2014.
