Language and Democracy: An Interdisciplinary Conference (Call for paper)

Ultima actualizare: 31 Dec 2013

Call Deadline: 28-Feb-2014

Meeting Description:

What can we say about the relationship between language and democracy? Think about the oratory of political debates, about the constitution of the world in public media, about interaction between administration and citizen, about voiceless votes, language policy, tortures, dialogues under surveillance, approaches to liquid democracy: is there a “(un)democratic language” or a “language of democracy”? But maybe these questions are wrong due to the included assumptions: What “is” “democracy” for itself? What does it mean, when people, politicians or linguists want to speak about “language and democracy”?
