Call for Papers

5th Conference on Intercultural Rhetoric and Discourse

English Language Institute

University of Michigan

Ann Arbor, Michigan

June 11 – 13, 2009


We hope that the conference papers will focus on the way contextual occasions affect communicative and textual outcomes across a wide range of intercultural settings, from "small cultures" such as those that emerge in classrooms or working groups, to broad cross-cultural comparisons (i.e. business) and cross-disciplinary differences.
