This three-day conference focuses is on language and communication
that might be
described as 'impolite', 'rude', 'aggressive', 'face-attacking', etc., building
on the success of the first impoliteness conference (LIAR) at the University of
Huddersfield. However, we also welcome any papers that are related to
theory, application or practice in any form. Researchers and postgraduates
working in fields such as linguistics, sociology, psychology, communication
studies, business studies, organizational studies, conflict resolution studies,
literature and philosophy are particularly welcomed, though the conference is
open to all interested parties.

Please contact the organizers regarding any proposals for panels.

Papers and Posters abstracts deadline: 31 January 2009.
