Agenda item 1): Internal CoCoLaC-seminar in fall 2017
Date: 15.9.2017, afternoon (e.g. 1 to 6 pm / esim. klo 13-18)
We expect that every CoCoLaC-member presents a short paper on expectations and suggestions in regard to our research community, including information on existing research networks, current projects, plans for future research, and especially ideas for common projects of several members, etc.
The presentation can take 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or 20 minutes.
Those who can’t take part in the seminar, should deliver
a PowerPoint-presentation or
at least a text on the subjects mentioned above, in advance.
We will also organise a video conference for those who cannot come to Helsinki, but are available at that time somewhere else. You will receive further information on this at the beginning of September.
Agenda item 2): Open CoCoLaC-conference in spring 2018
Theme / title: COMPARATIVE APPROACHES TO PRAGMATICS
In the call for papers / invitation, we are going to mention two main areas of contributions we expect:
a) Intercultural pragmatics with focuses on practices in different cultures and languages, on historical pragmatics, on pragmatic aspects of phonetics, on the acquisition of foreign languages, on translation and interpretation practices, and on situations when different speakers use a language as lingua franca without being native speakers.
b) Cyberpragmatics as part of Digital Humanities and with a focus on communication via the Internet and interactions in the so-called social media, including how the communication (intentions, interpretations, etc.) is affected by the properties of the medium.
Date: 22.3. & 23.3.2018 (Thursday & Friday)
