>************** BACKGROUND AND FOCUS *********************
>
>Background
>
>The themes addressed in recent years by IALIC conferences, like the
>papers of the Association’s journal of Language and Intercultural
>Communication, have been a direct expression of the multivalency and
>interdisciplinarity which lie at the heart of Intercultural Studies.
>Having had as their central concern the nature and role of languages in
>intercultural communication, conferences have focused on borders and
>boundaries, the global and the local, translation and, latterly, on the
>transcultured self. The emphasis has been shared between exploring
>pedagogical innovation and defining the research priorities of an
>emergent field which draws variously on the disciplines of
>anthropology, philosophy, education, psychology, management, literary
>theory, languages and cultural studies.
>
>‘Narration’ has been a recurrent topic of debate in all the conferences
>so far. It has featured as an integral component of ethnographic
>research, as a vehicle for self-definition in identity formation, as a
>core issue in translation, and, through literary fiction, autobiography
>and film, as a privileged medium for describing the intercultural
>state. It has reflected the Association’s concern to analyse the
>experiential and ethnographic dimensions of displacement and living
>abroad, to examine the links between these and the process of language
>learning and to capture the ontology of ‘dwelling in travel’.
>
>The Focus
>
>The aim of the 2003 IALIC conference is to sharpen thinking on the
>intercultural narrrative as the main object of analysis. ‘Narrative’
>implies story-telling, a form of communication whose role in life today
>seems ever more prominent, whether it be in psychological therapy,
>business training and evaluation, diary writing, autobiography,
>reportage or advertising. ‘Intercultural narrative’ invites reflection
>on the aesthetic form and pragmatic function of texts which transcend
>or transgress linguistic, cultural and generic boundaries.
>
>The conference will seek to identify and define the properties of the
>intercultural narrative in what is commonly described as a ‘post-
>colonial’ or ‘multi-cultural’ world. Has the intercultural narrative
>always existed? Is it the product of recent political, historical and
>cultural developments? The aim of conference is both to reconsider
>concepts, review practices and develop strategies, and to reflect on
>the empirical reality of language in intercultural communication. Our
>concerns are as much with practical analysis as they are with
>theoretical definition.
>
