    Resistance and protest in postcolonial Africa: representations in language and literature

    Exploring verbal and nonverbal expression and representation of resistance, dissent and dissidence in Postcolonial Africa

    Language and discourse are central in power mediation in any society. This concern has provoked scientific burgeoning that led to the development of a social approach to linguistics, called critical linguistics (CL), which recognized power relationships as a central theoretical issue, and discourse as well as text as its main unit of analysis. Given the complexity of globalized understandings and practices of citizenship and political engagement, there is a need to explore how Africans are participating as activists and emancipated citizens in a vibrant public sphere. This volume seeks to explore the verbal and signed acts of resistance and protest in the postcolonial context of Africa from a variety of angles and epistemological approaches.  It explores how knowledge and political/social call to action (rejecting leaders, resisting, dissenting)  is perceived, shared and used  by the individual and/or social groups in postcolonial Africa.

    Language in the Global History of Knowledge

    This workshop discusses various ways in which language and the study of language figured in the global history of knowledge, from the 16th to the early 20th century. In the expanding network of mercantile, missionary, and colonial relations, language was both a vessel and a barrier for the transmission of knowledge. Moreover, languages became an object of knowledge and theory-formation in themselves, in ways that diverged from how their speakers knew their language and their world. Our aim is to address the interrelations between these different kinds of knowledge. The emergence of the language sciences has to be understood both in relation to traditions of textual scholarship within different cultures, and to developments in other fields of science (broadly understood).

    Work languages/languages at work

    Études en didactique des langues journal, no.38

    This issue of FLLTR is devoted to the relationship between the workplace and languages. The terms “working language” and “language at work” cover different realities. The first is a language commonly used in a professional context. The second is used to carry out certain tasks such as writing a report, a technical note or an article. This raises the problem of upstream training. In higher education in particular, language learning and acquisition are key aspects of student training. There is also the problem of the predominance of English. How much emphasis should be given to other languages in training in order to stimulate reflection on the interface between companies and training?

    Imagining the Future of Multilingualism

    Education and Society at a Turning Point

    Since 2008, the Conseil Européen pour les Langues / European Language Council (CEL/ELC) has hosted a Forum every two years. These Fora seek to bring together representatives of higher education institutions, of European institutions and organisations, such as, for example, the European Commission, the European Parliament, and the Council of Europe, and of European associations like the European University Association (EUA) as well as scholars with a special interest in European integration, policy development, and multilingualism. At the centre of 2020 discussions will be the role that Higher Education can and should play in the promotion and development of multilingualism as a key aspect of European cooperation – related to facets such as language policy, internationalisation, language and knowledge, education and mobility, to mention just a few. In this context, participants will also reflect on the future role of the CEL/ELC by identifying and analysing new challenges that have arisen in our changing world.

    Two post-doctoral positions for the projet "Decoding Antisemitism"

    In the three-year pilot pro­ject "Identi­fy­ing the Real Dimen­sion of Anti­semit­ism 2.0 in Europe", an inter­na­tional research team will invest­ig­ate anti­semitic lan­guage and image use on news web­sites and social media plat­forms of the polit­ical main­stream in three European coun­tries (Ger­many, Great Bri­tain and France). First, the object of invest­ig­a­tion is ana­lysed in detail. In the second step, all of the examined phe­nom­ena are invest­ig­ated in their breadth by means of quant­it­at­ive ana­lyses. Main tasks of the post-doctoral positions will be, on one hand, the qual­it­at­ive lin­guistic con­tent ana­lysis of social media com­ments and ana­lysis of image mater­ial and text-image rela­tion­ships in rela­tion to anti­semitic con­tent; on the other hand, the applic­a­tion of quant­it­at­ive lin­guistic meth­ods to the social media cor­pus.

    Illness as Metaphor in the Latin Middle Ages

    Leeds International Medieval Congress 2021

    The session seeks to provide a forum for scholars to reflect on the variation and functions of metaphors of illness in the Latin writing of the Middle Ages. We encourage papers that investigate how the imagery of morbus, pestilentia, gangraena etc. structured individual experience and how it shaped self-knowledge and practices of communities. We invite original contributions that critically examine the role that Latin metaphors of illness played in medieval discourse as a tool of explaining reality and as a rhetorical device used to impose specific world views.

    “Celui qui parle, c’est aussi important !” Forms and variations of author-function in linguistics, philology, and literature

    Since the 1960s there has been much critical reflection on the figure of the author, and this has been analysed from several angles in linguistic and literary studies as well as more recent forms of web writing in the wake of the digital revolution. First, structuralism and Saussurian theory laid the groundwork for the renewal of Literary theory. The “death of the author” propounded by Barthes (1961) offered the chance to redefine the essence, the role and the status of the author. The first person to accept this challenge was Michel Foucault, during his lecture Qu’est-ce qu’un auteur? at Collège de France, on 22 February 1969. Beyond the limits of historical and ideologically connoted analysis, debate on the matter is far from settled. On the contrary, the authorial question offers food for thought in different fields of linguistics, philology and literature. If the modern concept of author called for reflection on Beckett’s provocative “qu’importe qui parle?”, even today the number of issues that can be investigated in relation to the author prove how important this is for all three aforementioned disciplines.

    Lexicographic Studies of Arts

    Session at The Renaissance Society of America Annual Meeting 2021

    This panel aims to bring together coordinators of digital projects - completed or in progress - around the lexicon and the scientific edition of texts of artistic or technical literature, with researchers who have adopted this terminological approach to analyze in an innovative way well known or unpublished texts, related to the production, the practice of the arts and interpretative theories derived from practice and which marked the history of taste. The papers will aim to provoke discussions about the method, contributions and perspectives of the lexicographic approach in the artistic field, in an interdisciplinary logic, in order to federate language historians, digital humanities specialists and art historians.
