DISCOURSE AND PERSUASION 3.0: IDENTITIES IN A HYBRID AND MULTIMODAL WORLD
Facultad de Ciencias Sociales y Humanas, Teruel. Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain
24 September 2019 (Pre-Conference Workshops)
25-27 September 2019 (Main Conference)
Following the five successful events hosted by the Universities of Naples (2013), Catania (2014), Macerata (2016), Cagliari (2017) and Antwerp (2018), the I-Land Interuniversity Research Centre brings the sixth edition of its Languaging Diversity annual conference (LD6) to the University of Zaragoza, Spain, at the Campus of Teruel. The beautiful historic city of Teruel, a UNESCO world heritage site, boasts mesmerising examples of the Mudejar architectural style, and is home to the tragic and deeply moving story of Diego de Marcilla and Isabel de Segura, the so-called ‘lovers of Teruel’.
LD6 builds on the themes of the previous editions (i.e. diversity, alterity, power, social class and globalisation) to propose a research strand linked to persuasion, the pragmatic or communicative intention whereby identity is enacted, power communicated and societal patterns reproduced.
