Influence, Manipulation, and Seduction 2 - Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Persuasive Language
18 Nov 2022 - 19 Nov 2022 • virtual, Any Location (virtual event)
hosted by Tampere University and the University of Bayreuth
How can we get someone to behave in a way that they initially did not intend? And how can we change what our interlocutor thinks about a certain issue? We use language to ‘convince’, ‘persuade’, ‘cajole’, or ‘coax’ our counterpart into a certain behavior or state of mind. These are activities we engage in constantly, usually even without conscious thought. It is words that have the power to mold and influence opinions, attitudes, and behavior. This persuasive power of language is at the center of this symposium.
