Call For Papers

Third International Symposium on Intercultural, Cognitive and Social Pragmatics
(20-22 February 2008), organised by the research group 'Intercultural Pragmatic
Studies' of the University Pablo de Olavide, Seville (Spain).

The research group 'Intercultural Pragmatic Studies (English-Spanish): Pragmatic
and Discourse Aspects' of the University Pablo de Olavide of Seville (Spain) is
pleased to announce its Third Symposium on Intercultural, Cognitive and Social
Pragmatics (EPICS III - Encuentros de Pragmática Intercultural, Cognitiva y
Social), to be held in February 20-22 2008.

The third edition of the symposium will be devoted to ''Intercultural Pragmatics
and Language Teaching''. Dr. Helen Spencer-Oatey, Director of the Centre for
English Language Teacher Education, Warwick University, U.K. and Dr. Victoria
Escandell-Vidal, Professor of Linguistics at the UNED, Spain, have confirmed
their presence as the symposium's keynote speakers.

The Symposium will serve as a forum where applied linguists and practitioners of
Pragmatics and Discourse Analysis can meet, share experiences, discuss common
problems, and present papers on their latest research in the field. EPICS III
also wishes to create awareness among graduating students of the growing
interest in this area of linguistic expertise.

Submissions
We welcome original papers, written in English or Spanish (20 minutes in length,
the last 5 minutes will be devoted to questions and discussion) on any topic
relevant to the mission of ''Intercultural Pragmatics and Language Teaching''.
The symposium is especially interested in papers that:

- explore the implications of pragmatics research for theoretical developments
and practical applications in the fields of second language acquisition and
intercultural communication,
- discuss language in use in the context of cross-cultural interaction,
- analyze pragmatics research findings from the perspective of bi- and
multilingual development,
- study the nature of interaction of bi- and multilinguals and language learners,
- investigate the effect of dual language and multilingual systems on the
development and use of pragmatics skills,
- examine the teachability and learnability of pragmatic skills in instructional
environments.

Participants should submit one-page abstract (500 words) accompanied by a
step-by-step outline of the presentation and the following information:

1. Author's name(s) and affiliation
2. Title of paper
3. Audio-visual equipment required (VHS video, OHP, cassette)
