THEME: PRAGMATICS OF (MIS)REPRESENTATION IN HUMAN COMMUNICATION
This conference will explore the practice of (mis)representing ethnic, religious, gender, sexual, political and corporate entities and interests in public discourses, and the effect it may have on (mis/dis)informing the public. It is interested in bringing together local and international scholars from diverse disciplines to investigate the role (mis)representation plays as a resource for motivating, justifying and rationalising accurate judgement, stereotypes, social discrimination, political marginalisation, hate discourses and violence. This role raises the following questions: What constitutes representation or misrepresentation in human communication? Why is (mis)representation engaged in public discourses? How is (mis)representation constructed and disseminated?
The deadline for Early Bird registration is 7 March, 2022.
