V International Symposium EDiSo 2021 programme

Crisis has always been a slippery concept with shifting meanings depending on the conditions under which it is encountered. Often framed discursively in relation to societal junctures, disruptions and lived experiences of discontinuity, the term has historically encapsulated imagined moments of individual and collective vulnerability. In so doing, crisis has also been a powerful driver mobilising affective dispositions with impact on how social actors engage in (and make sense of) linguistic, semiotic and communicative practices mediating changing forms of identification and social relation.

Although it always involves a great deal of symbolic action, crisis is also intertwined with the (re)production and challenging of specific material inequalities. This has been, for example, the case with the perceived socio-economic and health-related crises of the last few centuries. While helping to (re)constitute long-standing unequal distribution of material resources across different contexts, these crises have at the same time engendered new logics of social organisation and (not always expected) forms of political reorganisation.

The V EDiSo International Symposium 2021 aims to address these issues by inviting discursive, sociolinguistic and semiotic approaches to the study of disruptions and vulnerabilities in times of crises. It welcomes contributions that shed light on their apprehension, impact and (re)signification, and on what discourse studies have to offer to an understanding of those processes.

In preparing your conference presentation, perhaps you have wondered: in which language? For anyone participating in an international conference, the obvious choice is English, everyone’s and no one’s language. But at EDiSo, we want to practice internationalisation in alternative ways by opening up linguistic pluralism to its multiple possibilities in communicative action. For example, an oral presentation may be in one language while audiovisuals are provided in another; or questions and comments
may be expressed in one or more languages while responses are offered in others.

EDiSo-2021 represents a great opportunity for learning about topics, foci and methodologies in discourse analysis, but it is also a privileged cross-cultural space for learning to communicate through diverse resources and for putting our partial, inter-comprehension competences into practice. Just speak slowly, change languages, be
inventive, and let the communication flow along our continuum of linguistic varieties.
