at the Porter Institute
cordially invite you to a conference
Analyzing Discourse and Argumentation Today:
Contemporary European Trends
Tel-Aviv University, June 5-6, 2011
The main objective of this conference is to bring together different traditions of Discourse Analysis and Argumentation Analysis across Europe (mainly Belgium, France, Finland, Great-Britain, Romania, Switzerland) and in Israel, so as to raise questions related to their theoretical objectives and their possible social uses. Such questions include: What does the term “analysis” mean as far as discourse and argumentation are concerned? What kind of descriptive or normative practices does it entail? What immediate purposes can such analysis serve, beyond its scientific objectives, in social and political life?
Keynotes: Dominique Maingueneau, Paris-12, Norman Fairclough, Lancaster
