The XIV Susanne Hübner international seminar, "Linguistics and persuasive communication", will take place in Zaragoza,14-17 November 2007.


The XIV Susanne Hübner international seminar (Department of English and German philology, University of Zaragoza, Spain), will welcome paper proposals in the traditional disciplines of linguistics as well as in neighbouring disciplines insofar as these are deemed to be of interest to linguists and students of natural language.

With Plenary lectures and papers as its main Scientific Events, this international seminar, aims to focus on the ways in which Linguistics and persuasive communication matter in the realms of language, higher education, literature and the arts, culture, history and sociology, etc., transnationally and globally.

The following list of topics (proposals for 20 minute papers) is meant to be suggestive rather than restrictive; we welcome inter/transdisciplinary proposals:

- Linguistics and linguistic diversity.

- Cognitive linguistics and higher education (language as an instrument for organizing, processing and conveying information in the context of the European Space for HE).

- Linguistics and ESP (English for specific purposes)

- Linguistics and literature,

- Linguistics, media and arts

- Applied Linguistics

- Rethinking persuasive communication (does rhetoric face new challenges in the 21st century?).

- Cultural production and persuasive communication (literature, film, visual art, performance, music, blog-culture, web-art, etc.).

- Persuasive communication, language learning and language acquisition.

We welcome proposals for 20 minute papers -with a 150-word abstract (including 3-5 keywords).
