DNDIPVAC 2024 – Changing Discourses in collaboration with the Discourse-Pragmatic Variation Network & Change and DiscourseNet

The aim of the conference on changing discourses and discourse-pragmatic variation is to explore the ways in which language use shifts and evolves over time, as well as the factors that influence these changes. Participants at the conference are welcome to submit papers taking a descriptive approach and examine how changes in the political climate, society and technology impact language use, and how language use in turn shapes social and cultural practices. The conference will also explore how discourse-pragmatic variation manifests in different contexts, such as in professional settings, in interpersonal relationships, and in public discourse. Overall, the conference will provide a forum for scholars, researchers, and practitioners to engage in lively discussion and debate about the complexities of language use and its relationship to social and cultural change.
