AILA 2020: World Congress of Applied Linguistics

 Symposium, 12 Aug 2020 - 14 Aug 2020, Groningen, Netherlands

The dynamics of language, communication and culture in a changing world.

Deadline Call for Papers: 16 September 2019.

Successful communication of figures is key in finance and, thus, affects us all. In our symposium, we intend to contribute to an enhanced understanding of the pivotal role that language and communication play in the financial sector and in society-at-large. Key research questions include which communication strategies the stakeholders use, why they make their decisions as they do, and how the resulting practices are received in public discourse. By creating the opportunity for close interdisciplinary dialogue between complementary disciplines, the symposium aims at developing a common agenda of joint research on communication in finance as a key to an economically shaped world.

In our symposium, we address theoretical, methodological, and practical challenges of investigating the intertextual and interdiscursive dynamics and linguistic strategies at the interface of verbal, visual, and numerical languages and their macro-structural context. Research frameworks combine innovative questions with inter- and transdisciplinary approaches (Laskin, 2017; Palmieri, Perrin, Whitehouse, 2018) that enable researchers to capture and understand the field’s complexity and dynamics. Methods and methodologies emanate from or are combined from e.g. text analysis, genre analysis, multimodal genre analysis, critical genre analysis, discourse analysis, critical discourse analysis, corpus analysis and writing research.
