COSERIU100 — Coseriu's Linguistics - Origin and Actuality
16 Jun 2021 - 19 Jun 2021 • Zurich, Switzerland
Eugenio Coseriu (1921-2002) was one of the most influential linguists of the 20th century. His language theory has had an important impact on contemporary Romance and General Linguistics. In several branches of linguistics (such as the theory of language change, pragmatics and text linguistics, variational linguistics or semantics), Coseriu’s proposals of the 1950s can be considered groundbreaking, however, even if several of his linguistic concepts have become part of the canon of linguistics, others have remained largely unknown at least outside the circle of Coseriu’s disciples. The centenary of his birth in 2021 will be the occasion for the celebration of an international conference jointly organized at two Universities: Zurich (Switzerland) and Tubingen (Germany).

13th meeting of the international Symposium on (Im)Politeness and the 7th meeting of the biannual iMean
24 Jun 2021 - 26 Jun 2021 • Basel, Switzerland
In 2021 the 13th meeting of the international Symposium on (Im)Politeness and the 7th meeting of the biannual iMean (interaction and meaning) conference will be merged for a meeting on the “pragmatics of translation” on 24-26 June, 2021. We will invite papers on translation outcomes and processes which highlight a pragmatic angle of understanding the transfer of language phenomena across cultures and intra-culturally. We approach translation from a broad perspective, including written textual translation from source to target language as well as other modalities such as signing, simultaneous translation or audiovisual translation by professional and lay people. We also include topics such as explaining meaning to each other or translating sensual experience into language.
