Collective research and educational projects
CONDA: Contrastive Discourse Analysis (for linguists, translators, foreign language teachers and cultural mediators)
We are working on a research-educational project exploring cultural (and linguistic) profiles in text, discourse, and genre studies. The ultimate purpose of the project is to prepare an academic course-book (multiauthorial monograph) linking theory and practical text analyses in several languages. The book will be addressed to translators, foreign language teachers and other cultural mediators.
Communicating knowledge and information in discourses of (post-)modernity - project of a collective monograph in the LSI publication series
Anthology of Prof. Anna Duszak's texts - collective volume in preparation
Book in memoriam Prof. Anna Duszak (1950-2015) - in preparation
Colloquium of the Department of Discourse Studies:
The DDS Colloquium is an interdisciplinary scholarly meeting organized each year as a collegial panel held at “a common table”. Invited guests and other participants are asked to take the floor on the suggested leitmotif, and they give (semi-formal) presentations (c. 15-25 minutes), which are followed by a general discussion on debated issues. Such an ‘open’ convention of the Colloquium aims to create direct, interesting, dynamic and friendly atmosphere for an exchange of academic experience and ideas on the selected topic.
COLLOQUIUM announcement 2017
COLLOQUIUM programme 2017
The series groups publications (monographs and collected volumes) dedicated to specialised communication in a wide range of social contexts: media, business, professions, politics, international relations, diplomacy, healthcare, religion, etc. It invites studies incorporating diverse branches of linguistics, esp. sociolinguistics, conversational analysis, linguistic pragmatics, discourse analysis and texts linguistics, to illustrate recent interactive processes operating within and across selected cultural domains. Of special interest are contributions informed by interdisciplinary approaches that respond to and reflect the ongoing exchange between theoretical and applied linguistics.
The languages of the series are English and Polish.

The series will publish books addressing the nexus between language, culture and society. Contrastive studies are welcome in particular, whether of a synchronic or diachronic orientation. Various perspectives on language/communication are of interest: grammatical, pragmatic, sociolinguistic, discoursal and semiotic. A wide range of theoretical and methodological positions is accepted: cognitive / anthropological / corpus linguistics, as well as pragmatics, interactional sociolinguistics, (specialized) genre analysis, or critical discourse studies.
The cutting edge of the series is to publish innovative research elucidating the processes of inter- and intra-language variation and change, and – at the same time – relating them to flows in and across cognate categories of culture, community and society.
The series will publish monographs and edited volumes reporting on data-driven research that carries a potential for application in translation studies, language teaching, multilingual (multicultural) education, and interdisciplinary critical discourse studies.
The languages of publication will be English and German, yet book proposals in other major languages will also be considered, if centrally contributive to the main aim of the series.
