Since 2011, the European Union is facing a dramatic migrant crisis, involved by the political and social turbulences occurred in the Middle East, Central Asia and the Corn of Africa. According to the UN Refugees Agency, over 1.5 million people were forced to leave their countries since 2014. The crisis reached a peak in 2015, with the civil war in Syria, the emergence of the Islamic State and the intervention of the Western coalition siding with the rebels to Bashar al-Assad's regime, which is supported by Russia.
The conference will bring together researchers who are interested in the collection, organization, processing, analysis and sharing of Computer-mediated communication data (CMC data) for research purposes. We invite submissions on corpus analysis of various types of CMC data for linguistic or applied linguistic purposes and Natural Language Processing. The focus will encompass different CMC genres. These include, but are not limited to, discussion forums, blogs, newsgroups, emails, SMS and WhatsApp, text chats, wiki discussions, social network exchanges (such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin), discussions in multimodal and/or 3D environments (virtual worlds, gaming worlds).
In the spring of 2017, Early Modern Low Countries (EMLC) will publish its first issue. The new open access journal will appear in two installments every year, containing high-quality, original scholarship for an international readership on any aspect of the history and culture of the Low Countries between 1500 and 1800. The successor of two well-reputed Dutch-language journals (De Zeventiende Eeuw and De Achttiende Eeuw) EMLC aspires to publish papers by scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds working anywhere in the world.
Lacuna is the term which conventionally refers to the void generated, within a text, by the loss of some elements: letters, words or even sentences. It is a cavity collecting a writing suspension able to compromise the whole discourse meaning. However, the lack of words is not always identifiable as a space of incongruence or philological desperatio. Rather, it can emerge as a representational criterion and be defined as the result of external contingencies or as a voluntary or unaware communication forswearing.
An international conference Pragmatics of Negation‑Aspects of Communication will take place in Stockholm from May 31 to June 2, 2017.

The Panthéon-Assas University “Law and Humanities” research centre (a part of CERSA) is pleased to announce its first international conference to be held in Paris (France) on June 15-17, 2017. As an interdisciplinary group working on the connections between law and politics, economics, and literature, we are seeking papers exploring the dark sides of the law from a wide range of perspectives in the United Kingdom, the United States and Commonwealth countries.
CLARe 3 – Corpora for language and aging research
The conference is dedicated to discussing major issues in language and aging research. The focus is on projects and research questions taking their point of departure in empirical approaches and the use of innovative methods to gather and analyze authentic material and samples of language data from older adults. Also, the subject of language in later life is deeply embedded in interdisciplinary contexts.
CIDEHUS: Call for e-book proposals
CIDEHUS (Centro Interdisciplinar de História, Culturas e Sociedades) has one book collection with peer-review: Fontes e Inventários that publishes historical sources editing or inventories of archives and other collections. From now on, once a year, CIDEHUS opens a call for book proposals to general academic community and not only to the members of our research center.
How do we deal with its gaps ?
Curriculum development, assessment of linguistic achievement, materials development, educational standards – for more than 15 years, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages has been considered an established framework which provides orientation and ideas for the various contexts in which learning and teaching foreign languages takes place.
This workshop is the closing event of the ANR Corpus Géomédia project, which has had geographs, media specialists and computer scientists working together since the end of 2012. It reflects the aims of the project, ie. to create a tool to capture RSS feeds concerned with international news for a number of newspapers in the world (French-, English- and Spanish-speaking), before using it to answer some research issues: what is an event? how to explain the sub/over-representation of some spaces or actors? can the flow of information be modelised at global scale?
La textualité médiévale et sa mise en œuvre
L’International medieval society organise l’édition 2016 de son colloque parisien sur le thème des mots au Moyen Âge. Entre dématérialisation des supports et augmentation du nombre des corpus numérisés, les études médiévales cherchent à s’adapter à ces nouvelles façons de produire la connaissance sur le Moyen Âge, en même temps qu’elles définissent les enjeux méthodologiques et historiques du traitement de mots qui existent désormais simultanément sous la forme de sources primaires (dans le codex, le rouleau, la charte ou l’inscription) sous la forme de reproductions numériques grâce aux images, et sous la forme de données statistiques et lexicographiques au sein d’outils de stockage et d’analyse.
The summer school offers an application of digital humanities to the study of poetry through practical learning of the latest technologies in this field.
Throughout the past two decades, interactional competences and practices have gained unprecedented attention in research on second language (L2) acquisition, use and education. Following Dell Hymes’ conceptualization of communicative competence, various lines of research have for long been concerned with pragmatic development in an L2, mostly focusing on the realization of speech acts. Yet, it is only recently that research has started to systematically investigate how people's capacity to engage in social interaction is affected in their L2 and how their ability to participate in such interaction evolves over time.
The Göttingen Dialog in Digital Humanities (GDDH) has established a forum for the discussion of digital methods applied to all areas of the Humanities and Social Sciences, including Classics, Philosophy, History, Literature, Law, Languages, Archaeology and more. The initiative is organised by the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH) with the involvement of DARIAH.EU.
École d’été Prosodie 2016
L’école d’été Prosodie 2016 permettra le regroupement de chercheurs autour des aspects théoriques et pratiques qui animent les recherches actuelles en prosodie. L’école sera organisée autour de conférences le matin et de tutoriels l’après-midi (où les participants mettront en applications les concepts discutés le matin lors des sessions de conférences) et manipuleront des données cliniques (les participants pourront venir avec leur propres données et questions afin d’animer les discussions). Cette école est ouverte aux étudiants de troisième cycle ainsi qu’aux chercheurs intéressés par les aspects théoriques et pratiques des recherches en prosodique. Cette école est à la fois pensée pour les chercheurs qui travaillent déjà sur la prosodie et l’intonation et qui approfondir d’avantage certains aspects particuliers, mais aussi pour les chercheurs qui souhaitent mieux comprendre comment incorporer et intégrer la prosodie à leur travail.
Modality, evidentiality and cognition
We will explore cognition verbs from a cross-linguistic perspective. The data from a sample of languages will enable us to examine the interaction between language and cognition, the evolution patterns of cognition verbs and the near-synonymity of phrases such as I think, I guess or I suppose. The keynote speaker Jan Nuyts (university of Antwerp) will present historical data that questions the origin of the parenthetical uses of mental state verbs, and allows us to reinvestigate the questions of grammaticalisation and subjectification.
Studies in Twentieth and Twenty-first Century Literature Special Issue
Numéro spécial de la revue Studies in Twentieth and Twenty-first Century Literature portant sur les réponses apportées par le monde littéraire à la crise du langage et des représentations ayant frappé les écrivains à la suite de la Grande Guerre. L'accent sera mis sur les langues française, espagnole et allemande, sur l'influence des différents contextes nationaux sur la forme des écrits littéraires nés de la guerre, ainsi que sur la valorisation de textes peu connus du grand public.
Fictional and non-fictional narratives related to professional communities and specialized groups
Situated in the socio-discoursal and socio-cultural approaches to LSP studies (Belcher 2004), this international conference engages with the dual objective of pursuing enquiry related to studies in FASP (fiction à substrat professionnel), a genre of fiction identified and codified by Michel Petit (1999) and Shaeda Isani (2004), on the one hand and, on the other, exploring new avenues of reflection regarding other narrative forms, both fictional and non-fictional of potential interest to ESP studies.
The goal of the conference is to bring together junior researchers and give them an opportunity to practise their presentation skills in English and discuss their work with specialists in their field. Topics relevant to the conference encompass all fields of linguistics focusing on the English language, including, but not restricted to, first and second language acquisition, language teaching and learning, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, corpus linguistics, lexicology and lexicography, translation and interpretation, and phonetics. Different perspectives can be adopted (methods of data collection, multimodality, etc.). Contributions exploring the questions of "affect", "stance" and "intersubjectivity" or any other related subjects (dialogicity, expression of emotions, modality, etc.) will be greatly appreciated.
