    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?

    Verbum et Lingua journal - issue devoted to Peter Handke

    The 17th issue of the journal Verbum et Lingua will publish contributions on the Austrian-born Nobel Prize winner (2019) Peter Handke. Works are expected on all his work: from the very early experimental type and his intermediate phase in which he returns to the traditional forms of epic narrative and literary models with a clear philosophical influence. In the last part of his work, wide poetry of the narrative that links all the texts to each other stands out. Among the main themes of his work, the reality of war, the relationship between image and writing, text and film, and the social and media development of modernity predominate.

    Terminologia e interculturalità. Problematiche e prospettive

    XVI Gionata scientifica Realiter

    La XVI Giornata Scientifica di REALITER vuole proporre una visione d’insieme sulle attuali ricerche, concentrandosi sull’incontro fra la terminologia e l’interculturalità, una relazione che viene spesso evocata ma che non gode ancora né di una riflessione sistematica né di quadro di riferimento teorico esplicito. L’esperienza degli studi dei Lexiques REALITER ha permesso di verificare sul campo fino a che punto questa relazione sia fondamentale in qualsiasi pratica terminologica.

    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.

    The politics and geopolitics of translation

    The multilingual circulation of knowledge and transnational histories of geography

    In the last fifty years, the field of the history of geography has moved from an approach dominated by National Schools to an attention to the circulation of knowledge in its multiple scales. The history of science and of geography have in the last decades incorporated concepts such as transit, networks, mobilities, the transnational, circulation, centre of calculation, spaces of knowledge, geographies of science, spatial mobility of knowledge, geographies of reading and geographies of the book. More recently, a turn has emerged towards considering the dynamics and necessities of decolonizing the history of geography. This work is turning the field of the history of geography into one of the most dynamic areas of the discipline. Yet we suggest that questions of language and translation have remained under-determined in this new field. Translation and writing have not received the same attention as, for instance, departmental histories, sites of museums, laboratories, botanic gardens, and scientific societies, for example. We suggest, therefore, that new perspectives opened up by translation studies can open new windows on the history of geography.

    In praise of women in poetry: thinking rhetorical exaltation

    L’éloge se définit comme un discours épidictique né d’une vigoureuse admiration, impliquant une instance énonciative, productrice d’un discours évaluatif saturé d’amplification et de valorisation. L’éloquence de l’acte célébratif, éminemment rhétorique, établit ainsi la singularisation et l’élévation d’un objet, produisant un jugement mélioratif de l’objet visé. Omniprésent dans la poésie amoureuse et érotique (les odes et fragments saphiques, le cantique des cantiques biblique, la tradition du ghazal dans la poésie courtoise arabe et perse, les Amours et Odes ronsardiennes, L’union libre d’André Breton, l’hommage à la Femme noire de Léopold Sédar Senghor, The lesbian body de Monique Wittig se lisent comme autant de variantes encomiastiques), l’éloge a traditionnellement servi à chanter le féminin—geste qu’il s’agira d’interroger, tant sur le plan philosophique, énonciatif, rhétorique, genré qu'épistemologique.

    Estudios sobre el léxico español: nuevas contribuciones y aplicaciones para el desarrollo de la competencia léxica en L2

    Dans le cadre de l’étude de l’acquisition des langues de l’axe 2 du laboratoire Octogone-Lordat « Apprentissage/acquisition des langues et bilinguisme » et plus précisément, dans l’acquisition de l’espagnol L2, nous organisons cette journée d’études afin de présenter des études récentes sur l’apprentissage du vocabulaire espagnol par des étudiants francophones. Le lexique mental, la partie la plus plastique et dynamique de la langue, est un objet de recherche qui de par son évolution constante, mérite une attention particulière de la part de chercheurs autant en didactique qu’en acquisition d’une langue étrangère.

    Language, Cognition and Creativity

    8th International Biennial Conference of the French Association for Cognitive Linguistics (AFLiCo)

    We welcome 20 minute presentations (with 8 minutes for follow-up questions) from researchers interested in linguistic creativity. Interdisciplinary papers are welcome which address verbal creativity in conversations, humor, written communication, the verbal arts, multimodal forms, gestures, etc. Because creativity is of interest to many different researchers (see scientific statement below), we also welcome papers from those working on creativity in fields such as psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics, pragmatics, and psychology. The organizers especially encourage young researchers to submit an abstract. Presentations may be made in French or English.
