CLAVIER 17 – INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
REPRESENTING AND REDEFINING SPECIALISED KNOWLEDGE
________________________________________ 30 November – 2 December 2017 Piazza Cesare Battisti, 1 – Bari http://www.uniba.it/elenco-siti-tematici/clavier17 ________________________________________
The Corpus and LAnguage Variation In English Research Group (CLAVIER) is pleased to announce its 2017 international conference focussing on specialised knowledge and ways in which specialised knowledge is represented and redefined.
CLAVIER shares a methodological framework that combines two complementary strands of linguistic investigation – corpus analysis and discourse analysis – to research on language variation in English, both in quantitative and qualitative terms. Thus, one of the main aims of CLAVIER is to contribute to an integration of quantitative and qualitative methods in research on language variation in terms of diachronic, geographic and socio-cultural dimensions across genres/disciplines/domains and through the methodological tools offered by corpora.
This conference focusses on specialised knowledge, intended as the ways in which specialised discourse is construed, shaped, represented, transmitted, disseminated, accepted and analysed, as well as the ways in which specialised knowledge and discourse influence our everyday lives. Analytical approaches based on synchronic, diachronic and/or contrastive, interlinguistic and intercultural perspectives (including: translation; transcreation; simplification) are all equally welcome.
Papers are welcome on the above topics with reference to English and/or other natural languages.
Keynote speakers • Susan Hunston (University of Birmingham, UK) • Natalie Kübler (Université Paris Didérot, France) • Paul Thompson (University of Birmingham, UK) • Christopher Tribble (King’s College London, UK)
