20º Congreso Internacional de la Asociación Europea de Lenguas para Fines Específicos (AELFE XX)
Pisa (Italia), del 14 al 15 de septiembre de 2022
“Communication in the academic, professional, and political spheres during pandemic times”
This conference aims to discuss recent developments in academic, professional, institutional registers, and didactic communication as well as the types of specialized vocabularies involved. The 20th AELFE conference follows previous editions in describing and analysing possible linguistic/communicative disruptions in academic, professional, and institutional contexts, but in this case, we would like to emphasize those developments derived from the pandemic. Issues such as the intensive use of IT platforms, their influence on our daily professional and academic communication, and the creation of a different proximity that changes the roles of readers, writers, speakers and listeners, will be brought for the fore. We also want to better understand how the pandemic has changed the way we teach specialized languages. Particular attention, although not the only one in the conference, will be attributed to political discourse, which has hybridized with the emerging medical/health science discourses, while its specialized terms have become the subject of constant disclosure. In order to reflect on specialistic communication during the pandemic, participants are invited to send their proposals in relation (though not restricted) to the following research lines, within a synchronic and/or diachronic perspective:
The conference will be held face to face (streaming mode is also provided) and will include 20-minute communications/talks and poster sessions.
