Second Call for Papers - IALIC 2008: Faith, Hospitality and Shopping: Re-imagining Intercultural Dialogue 

31 October- 2 November 2008 - University of Glasgow

 

The 2008 conference of the International Association for Languages and Intercultural Communication is issuing a second call for papers addressing the theme of "Faith, Hospitality and Shopping - Re-imagining intercultural dialogue". The conference theme is designed to be provocative and to stimulate lateral thinking in what the European Commission has designated 'the year of the intercultural dialogue'. However, we invite contributors to consider the following propositions.

 

Faith, whether secular or religious, is a cornerstone of the construction of personal identity. Faith touches on one of the most sensitive boundaries between self and society, and raises issues of absolutism versus relativism. From what stance can 'people of faith' engage in intercultural dialogue?

 

It might be argued that hospitality is, or should be, at the root of intercultural engagement. The etiquette of hospitality varies across cultures, and hospitality itself has a variety of commercial and non-commercial manifestations. Can the performance of hospitality act as a template for intercultural encounters?

 

Shopping is a powerful metonym for the self-oriented consumerism that for many characterises the West. It symbolises the pleasure principle, hedonism, and free market capitalism. Is there a place for shopping in intercultural engagements?

 

The following are just some of the areas we are keen to explore:

 

Communication within and across faith boundaries 
The discursive construction of faith-based identities
The discursive construction of consumerism
The discursive construction of 'the new secularism'
Teaching language and culture in settings characterised by faith or consumerism
Language, hospitality and tourism
The sojourning experiences of migrants and tourists
The pleasures and perils of intercultural dialogue
The impact of tourism on local languacultures
The intercultural and linguistic competences of hosts and guests
The representation of faith, hospitality and shopping in the media
The rituals of languages and intercultural hospitality
The material cultures of faith, language and intercultural practices

 

 

Keynote speakers include: 

Professor Mike Robinson, Leeds Metropolitan University - "A Tour of the Aisles: Tescos, Tourism and the World that Never Ends"

Dr Nicole Bourque, University of Glasgow - "Shopping for God" 

Professor Alison Phipps, University of Glasgow - "Language Shopping: Phrases Books, Faith and Liturgies of Hospitality" 

 

Speakers include:  

Kenneth Austin, Tita Beaven, Mike Berry, Marjatta Nurmikari-Berry, Angelo Bottone, Dominic Busch, Cheryl Caesar, María José Coperías-Aguilar, Veronica Crosbie, Maria Dasli, Ivie Betty Erhahon, Doris Fetscher, Björn Freiberg, Miri Gal-Ezer, Manuela Guilherme, Sarah Guth, Fionnuala Kennedy, Nicolina Montesano Montessori, Robert O'Dowd, Louise Soutar, Joy van Helvert, Jane Wilkinson, Zhou Xiaoxiang, Wendy Anderson
