"Stancetaking in Discourse: subjectivity in interaction"
the 10th biennial Rice Linguistics Symposium
March 31-April 3, 2004,
Rice University, Houston, TX.
The Department of Linguistics at Rice University is pleased to announce the
10th Biennial Rice Linguistics symposium: "Stancetaking in Discourse:
subjectivity in interaction". Presenters have been invited from linguistics
and related disciplines to address stancetaking in naturally-occurring
spoken and/or written discourse. Stance--broadly construed as the
expression of emotion, attitude, subjectivity, and perspective--permeates
language use at all levels. The symposium seeks to explore the
interrelationship of stancetaking with language form and function, cultural
construction, and social interaction. Invited speakers will address these
issues from a range of approaches, including quantitative methodologies of
discourse/corpus linguistics and qualitative methodologies of ethnography
and Conversation Analysis.
There is no registration fee to attend the symposium, but you will need to
pre-register by e-mailing Robert Englebretson at email@example.com.
