Announcement via diskursanalyse.net

The Department of Linguistics is a sub-unit of the Faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies, consisting of four chairs (Applied Linguistics, General Linguistics, Historical Linguistics, Language Teaching and Learning Research). The announced post doc position will be the area of Applied Linguistics.

Applied Linguistics deals with language in social context and practice. In the context of the Viennese Institute, the discipline primarily covers sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, text and media research (the main foci of the chair) as well as conversation analysis, institutional communication, multilingualism, language policy and pragmatics. Applied Linguistics is conceived as an empirically driven, theory-building discipline which is also participating and taking stand in public discourse on linguistic matters. In the context of the Department of Linguistics, Applied Linguistics is furthermore committed to the common institutional goal of exploring language in a comprehensive sense (as a system, competence and social practice).

Application deadline: 10 June 2015
Identification number of advertisement: 5819

    The 1st International Workshop for Methodologies for Research on Legal Argumentation (MET-ARG)

    ——–
    December 10, 2014, Kraków, Poland at JURIX 2014 (The 27th International Conference on Legal Knowledge and Information Systems, http://conference.jurix.nl/2014/)

    MET-ARG is held in conjunction with the CMNA 14 workshop (http://www.cmna.info/CMNA14) and is organized under auspices of the ArgDiaP organisation (http://argdiap.pl/)

    The aim of the workshop is to provide a space for exchange of methodological ideas concerning the research on legal argumentation from three perspectives: AI and Law, argumentation theory and legal theory. Since a thorough discussion of scientific aims and adopted methodologies is needed in this field, our main motivation is to discuss some perspectives of cooperation and mutual inspiration among these three research areas in order to develop more effective, accurate and scientifically adequate theories and models of legal argumentation. This may lead to establishing of interdisciplinary research projects related to legal argumentation.

    Since we intend to facilitate a vivid and fruitful discussion of these issues, we would like to call for participation in the workshop on behalf of the organizing committee.

    University of Warwick

    The i-mean 4 conference will address the relationship between language and impact:

    ‘Impact’ has become a buzz word and is increasingly used as a criterion for decisions on research policy and research funding. The impact of linguistic research has been particularly visible in a number of areas including but not limited to language variation and change, language and politics, language policy and language use, language and identity (e.g. in relation to professional identity, gender, ethnicity or age), corporate and health care discourse, leadership and teamwork and linguistic vitality among others. The impact of the different epistemological and methodological approaches and the impact of the language of impact, however, are more rarely addressed.

    I-mean 4 aims to take a critical approach to impact and examine: (more…)
