*ABOUT THE CONFERENCE*
The aim of the conference is to explore discourses and cultural practices from a range of perspectives. We are interested in theoretical and applied research on discourses and cultural practices eg discourse and subjectivity, theories of discourse, practices as ‘the new discourse’; descriptive studies of discourse and cultural practices in specific contexts eg work, play, popular culture, organizations, media; and applications to professional and pedagogical contexts.

Papers, plenaries and colloquia will address themes and questions such as:

  • Discourses in professional practice: What roles do linguistic and cultural practices play in the organization and enactment of work?
  • Discourses and identity: How do we and others construct our sense of self through talk and text?
  • Academic discourses: Why do the discourses and cultural practices of the academy work as they do?
  • Discourse and intercultural communication: How do discourses differ in relation to different cultural practices?
  • Gendered discourses: How do discourse, gender and sexuality interrelate?
  • Classroom discourses: How do the language practices of the classroom relate to learning and teaching?
  • Discourses and international communication: What is the relationship between discourses, development and globalization?
  • Digital discourses: how are new technology producing new discourses?
  • Discourses and popular culture: What is the impact of popular culture on the formation of new discourses?

These are the main themes so far. If you would like to organize a paper of colloquium on other themes please let us know.
