Following the first edition of the conference (, the aim of the second edition this year is to provide an interdisciplinary platform for discussion over linguistic and nonlinguistic impolite and polite behaviour across languages and cultures. The focus of the conference will be pragmatic and sociolinguistic aspects of im/polite behaviour analysed both in terms of verbal and nonverbal communication, however we also welcome presentations across a wide variety of topics stemming from neighbouring fields of research, such as social studies, political studies, psychology, intercultural communication, media studies, etc. Talks will be scheduled for 20 minutes, with 10 minutes afterwards for discussion and questions. Presentations may be empirical or theoretical.
