"Communication in the 21st century"


Previous EPICS conferences have addressed issues pertaining to intercultural pragmatics, (im)politeness in interpersonal communication, interlanguage pragmatics, recent developments in relevance theory, language aggression and conflict, pragmatics in mediated communication, instruction of pragmatics through new technologies, or communication, culture and cognition. EPICS IX will be dedicated to analysing and discussing possible (new) interactions between intercultural, cognitive and social approaches in pragmatics with a view to looking into communication in the 21st century. In line with this, the conference theme will be “Communication in the 21st Century: Intercultural, Cognitive and Social Pragmatics” EPICS IX seeks to provide a forum for practitioners of pragmatics and other related disciplines to present on their latest research from social, cognitive or intercultural perspectives, as well as to suggest new avenues for research and share experiences. EPICS IX also wishes to create awareness among graduate students of the interest in pragmatics within the broad field of linguistics.
