Following on from the first 'Language in the Media' conference in 2005
and the subsequent formation of an AILA Specialist Research Network,
we are pleased to announce a second conference to be held at the
University of Leeds with a focus on 'language ideologies and media
We are interested in receiving abstracts for papers exploring any
aspect of the way in which language issues are represented and/or
constructed in (global) media discourse. At this particular
conference, however, we are especially keen to pursue theoretical and
methodological questions arising from the relationship between
language ideologies, on the one hand, and (critical) discourse
analysis, on the other.
Suggested topics for papers include:
Standard languages and language standards
Literacy policy and literacy practices
Language acquisition and language teaching
Multilingualism and cross-cultural communication
Language and education
Language issues in relation to class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality,
life-cycle, and disability
Language and technology
Language and globalization
Language and communication in professional contexts
Representations of speech, thought and writing in media discourse.
Please submit abstracts for papers (20 minutes + 5 minutes discussion)
by email to:
tommaso.milani at biling.su.se.
no later than 30 April 2007.
Abstracts should include a title, your contact details (name, postal
address, email) and a description of your talk (250 words max).
Notification of acceptance: 31 May 2007.
