Meeting Description:

Quotation in Political Discourse
Anita Fetzer & Elda Weizman

This panel examines quotation from form-based and function-based perspectives,
focussing on their strategic use in political discourse. It considers the
forms and functions of quotation across different speech communities and
different sociocultural contexts, across different communicative genres,
activities and modalities – in particular argumentation, positioning,
translation and personal narratives. 

Quotation has been defined as a case of mention, and thus – as
metarepresentation; it is therefore different from a classical communicative
act which is typically a case of use. Accordingly, it may include all forms of
direct speech, indirect speech and mixed types. In a quotation, a quoter
metarepresents the communicative act to be quoted and (re)contextualizes it
through relevant contextual coordinates, in particular source and other
participants, quotative, quoted, as well as temporal, local and discursive
contextual parameters.

Call for Papers:

We invite contributions which address the following questions:

- Quotation and translation
- Quotation in digital political discourse
- Quotation in CMC 
- Quotation in professional / elite political discourse
- Quotation in grassroot discourse 
- Quotation in political argumentation and political decision-making
- Quotation and the construction of identities 
- Quotation and adaptation 
- Quotation as ironic representation
