Conference

CADAAD 2010 Call for Papers | Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis Across Disciplines (CADAAD)
In line with previous CADAAD conferences, this conference aims to promote new directions in cross-disciplinary critical discourse research. We welcome contributions from all areas of critically applied linguistics. We especially encourage papers which assess the state of the art and explore new methodologies in critical discourse research oriented toward the general theme of ideology, identity and interaction. Possible areas of analysis include but are by no means limited to the following:

* · Identities in discourse
* · Political communication
* · Language in the news
* · Language in the new media
* · Discourse of advertising
* · Institutional discourse
* · Language and globalisation
* · Business communication
* · Scientific discourse
* · Health communication
* · Language and ecology

Papers will be allocated 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions. The language of the conference is English.

Abstracts of no more than 350 words (excluding references) should be sent by email as a Word attachment to discourse@cadaad.org by 15 January 2010. Please include name, affiliation, email address and paper title in the body of the email. All abstracts will be accepted subject to review by an international Scientific Committee. Notification of acceptance decisions will be communicated via email by the end of February 2010.
