Meeting Description:

The topic of Metadiscourse and related notions (authorial stance, hedging ,
citation practices and so on) have received a great deal of attention and
there are quite various investigations all over the world exploring them in
different genres. Considering the value and prominence of Metadiscourse, we
felt that it would be a great opportunity to bring researchers together to
revisit Metadiscourse from conceptual and methodological perspectives in
different genres. This international conference aims to disseminate current
research on Metadiscourse and related areas conforming to various qualitative
and quantitative approaches with special focuses on Discourse Analysis, Corpus
Linguistics, Genre Analysis. There are two publication plans by selecting the
best papers presented at MAG 2017 an edited book by Peter Lang and another
edited volume by Palgrave Macmillan. We are also negotiating a special issue
published by a reputable journal.

Plenary Speakers: 

Prof. Ken HYLAND
Prof. Anna MAURANEN
