“Can we live together, equal and different?” So asked Alain Touraine (1998) in an essay which challenged conventional, socio-centric approaches to inclusion and exclusion, equality and difference, diversity and multiculturalism. Using a concept of common good as a main criterion for evaluating human conduct, indeed, does not capture a structural context within which group competition reinforces ethnic, class, religious, gender boundaries. Neither does it shed light on the discrepancy between grand policy narratives – social inclusion, community cohesion, or big society, on the one hand, and the reality of social fabric breaking along these lines on the other.

The idea of the inclusive society – a society based on equality of opportunities and the equal capacity of all members regardless of differences of race, ethnicity, faith, religion, language, gender, social status, (dis)abilities or sexual orientation – fills policy documents, but does it work across the world? And how a ‘wider social interest’ manages and relates to social situations when ‘equal’ and ‘different’ collide?

CFP: Workshop “Documentation and Analysis of Multimodal Data"

cidleslogo2CFP: Workshop Documentation and Analysis of Multimodal Data
April 24th - 25th, 2015 Alcanena / Portugal

Deadline for registration: March 31st, 2015

Language use is fundamentally multimodal. When we speak point to places, we nod to signal our understanding and we outline our thought with our hands. Moreover, we coordinate our actions with our conversational partners. The way we talk, the words we use, the information we include depends on the common ground we share with our interlocutors and different social and contextual dimensions. This complexity of language use is best captured with video. Language documentation projects as well as any linguistic research project investigating dimensions of conversational language use should record video. However, video training is often limited to the technicalities of how to use a video camera and microphones but does not provide a theoretical framework for the features of language use. What is missing is an understanding of the social, linguistic and cognitive foundation of language use so that it becomes clear what needs to be captured how.

IVCIADCFP: IV Colóquio Internacional de Análise do Discurso
"A produção dos consensos e a conquista das resistências:
os discursos nos movimentos do mundo contemporâneo"
2-4 setembro 2015

O que produz o entendimento e o desentendimento entre os sujeitos de uma sociedade? Mais fundamentalmente, o que a constitui? Há efetiva compreensão entre seus membros, porque são eles falantes de uma mesma língua? Quais são os papéis desempenhados pela linguagem, pelas línguas e pelos discursos nos consensos e nos conflitos sociais? Essas e outras questões da mesma natureza acompanham o pensamento humano há milênios e voltam a nos frequentar mais intensa e particularmente em nosso mundo contemporâneo, marcado ao mesmo tempo, mas não na mesma medida, por lutas necessárias e reivindicações justas e por hegemonias, radicalismos e intolerâncias.

Em nossos tempos, o Mercado liberal, a Mídia tradicional e a Política conservadora não cessam de produzir e de veicular em consonância suas loas às práticas e aos valores do consumo e da democracia à moda ocidental. Já ouvimos, inclusive, o decreto do “fim da História”, com o alcance do que seriam os perfeitos sistema de produção e regime de governo: a Democracia capitalista. Assim, supostamente as lutas entre os “senhores” e os “escravos”, entre os “dominantes” e os “dominados”, entre, enfim, abastados e desvalidos de distintas sortes já não teriam mais razão de ser. Com a consolidação da Internet e, mais recentemente, das redes sociais, as benesses do sistema e do regime ganhariam um novo aliado: a tão almejada liberdade de expressão. Sua demanda, seu anúncio e exercício talvez possam ser em nossas bocas, com mais frequência do que gostaríamos, mais repetições que nos foram sugeridas do que diferenças que teríamos efetivamente conquistado. Sabemos, porém, que nas relações humanas não existem apenas reproduções e automatismos. Ante as estratégias de controle do poder de várias ordens, há a possibilidade de lhes confrontarmos com táticas e resistências. Estas últimas, entretanto, não são fenômenos naturais, cujo advento seria promovido sem árduas batalhas e dolorosas conquistas. Se assim não fosse, teríamos de fato chegado ao fim da História…

Call for Abstracts - Terralingua Langscape Vol. 4.1

. Publicado en Convocatorias

lang enew bannerLangscape Volume 4, Issue 1, Summer 2015
"Biocultural Diversity - The People's Issue!"
Call for Abstracts
Deadline for Abstracts:  February 5, 2015

Over the past two decades since Terralingua came into existence, the idea of biocultural diversity - the interlinked and interdependent diversity of life in nature and culture - has gone a long way.

It is being used internationally as a guiding principle for new, integrative approaches to sustaining life on our planet.  And it has begun to penetrate the consciousness of people from all walks of life, from all over the world, who care about diversity in nature and culture as the cornerstone of the beauty and resilience of life.

With this issue of Langscape magazine, we want to celebrate the growing network of people who have embraced biocultural diversity as a vital, yet increasingly threatened, aspect of life on Earth.  Biocultural diversity is a people's issue: it is up to us to take action to protect and sustain it for present and future generations.

CFP: International Conference “Europe in Discourse: Identity, Diversity, Borders"

. Publicado en Convocatorias

EuropeInDiscourseCFP: Conference "Europe in Discourse: Identity, Diversity, Borders"
September 23rd -25th, 2016 Athens, Greece

The Conference seeks to examine issues in the ongoing construction of European identity, including notions of diversity and (physical and symbolic) borders. It will focus on critical investigations that draw on discourse theory or bottom-up textual analysis to investigate these topics from the following perspectives:

  • historical, to explore the determinants which have been used to support a collective European identity;
  • geopolitical, to understand the importance of space and its role in the European edifice;
  • ideological/discursive, to investigate, synchronically and diachronically, key concepts that have informed EU practices of inclusion and exclusion
