Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics

Meeting Description:

The European Center for Linguistics (EZS), a co-operation between the
Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg and the Institute for German
Language in Mannheim (IDS), is advertising 45 places for participants
at the Winter School "Linguistic approaches to conflicts in European
language areas. Corpus - pragmatics - controversial". The Winter
School, which is kindly supported by Volkswagen Foundation, is taking
place at the German Department of the University of Heidelberg from
the 18 to 23 March 2013. The participants will be dealing with the
general topic of 'conflict linguistics' in workshops and presentations
by renowned referents like Guus Extra, Johannes Schwitalla, Hans Goebl
and Arnulf Deppermann amongst others.

Conflicts and their resolution are inherent in our daily life and our
increasingly interconnected existence. From the day-to-day
controversies to the intricate processes of the European Union, we
struggle to resolve our differences. Language is intimately involved
in all conflicts and their resolutions. Most conflicts arise and are
communicated via language. Likewise, language is the medium par
excellence to arrive at their most elegant solutions. Thus, we
valiantly strive 'to find the right word' or 'to use the correct
language'. Indeed, we observe that, 'it´s not just what is said, but
how it is communicated'. Our facility in utilizing language to
penetrate social-cultural barriers reflects our progress as a species,
and underlies any legitimate claim a society has to true knowledge and
power. To understand and to resolve our conflicts, we need to know and
to promulgate the rules and routines of linguistic communication. As
linguists, we have much to contribute to the analysis and resolution
of modern day conflicts on both 'basic' and 'applied' levels. With our
social-symbolic models, we have the tools that can describe the
communicative assumptions that are at the core of a controversy, and
then to guide further analyses. Thereafter, our strategies to resolve
current differences and to avoid future ones flow directly from our
linguistic models.

Programme und methods:

The talks and workshops are held over several days and will cover the
theoretical basics and methods for a linguistic analysis of different
settings (from a conversation to transnational discourses). The focus
is on the current discussion about the divergence and the
complementarity of the different methodological approaches within
linguistics: qualitative analysis of conversations and texts as well
as quantitative corpus analysis with regard to the central levels of
the language system.

On the afternoon of day 1 (18 March 2013) the participants will
present their current research projects in a poster session and in the
evening the Winter School opens officially with the presentation
"Responding to increasing linguistic diversity in multicultural
Europe" by Prof. Guus Extra in a festive atmosphere. On Tuesday (19
March 2013) several presentations will introduce the participants to
the general topic, which will be discussed in more detail on days 3-5
(20 to 22 March 2013) in workshops. On day 5 (22 March 2013) the
results of the workshops will be presented and evaluated. The Winter
School will end on the morning of the 23 March 2013.

The complete programme as well as the abstracts of each presentation
