REPRESENTING AND REDEFINING SPECIALISED KNOWLEDGE
CLAVIER 17 – INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

30 November – 2 December 2017
Piazza Cesare Battisti, 1 - Bari (Italy)

The CLAVIER17 international conference focusses on specialised knowledge, intended as the ways in which specialised discourse is construed, shaped, represented, transmitted, disseminated, accepted and analysed, as well as the ways in which specialised knowledge and discourse influence our everyday lives. Analytical approaches based on synchronic, diachronic and/or contrastive, interlinguistic and intercultural perspectives (including: translation; transcreation; simplification) are all equally welcome. The key-issues of the conference include (but are by no means limited to) the following:

  • Forms of specialised knowledge (institutional, academic, technical, popularised, spoken, social)
  • New or emerging specialised genres
  • Specialised knowledge in multimodal or multimedia discourse
  • Specialised knowledge in social forms of communication (including the social media)
  • The popularisation of specialised knowledge
  • Specialised knowledge in teaching contexts (including: CLIL; translator’s training; interpreter’s training)
  • Phraseological, rhetorical, pragmatic, or metadiscoursive aspects of specialized discourse
  • Features and conventions of specialized discourse
  • Construing specialised knowledge
  • New modes of knowledge dissemination
  • Redefinition of disciplinary boundaries
  • Co-construction of specialised knowledge
  • Lexicographical issues

Papers are welcome on the above topics with reference to English and/or other natural languages.
