DATES: 1–2 October 2015
WORKING LANGUAGES: English, Russian
THEME: This two-day conference will explore and debate the ways linguistics is linked to professional expertise in different spheres, as well as the ways various discourses interact and interpenetrate. While interdisciplinary stance begins to be seen as essential for linguistics in the 21st century, the discussion will be centred around the methodological approaches to how language extends to shape new contents and how new linguistic competences required to succeed in different professional contexts are formed. The role of literature and verbal aesthetics in general will be one of the major issues for discussion, featuring the year 2015 as The Year of Literature in the Russian Federation.
