    Beskrivelse

    The 'linguistic turn' in Philosophy and its tumultuous effects on the Humanities generally, as well as the Social Sciences, scared a lot of students of language and communication. Not accustomed to being in the limelight, linguists were now guardians of the very fundament of human thought, culture, and society – language! Many linguists chose to stay close to earlier analytic philosophic traditions. A few, more revolutionarily inclined one might say, saw the chance they had been waiting for, and the field of Pragmatics was born. Linguistic relativity, the discursive construction of this and that, ideal speech situations, social semiotics, conversation analysis are but a few examples from the bricolage of ideas related to the study of language and communication, but current today in a diverse ensemble of disciplines in both the Humanities and Social Sciences. And they all depend, in fundamental ways, on the subject matter and analytic techniques of Pragmatics. The first two days of this course offer an advanced introduction to the core topics of Pragmatic and a brief summary of its historical development. On the third day, we will investigate Pragmatics as it has been applied in particular fields of empirical research as determined by participants’ specific interests, for example language development, ethnography, interaction analysis. The course will consist of lectures and hands-on analytic activities. There will be assignments to do ahead of time, other than the readings of course, to do with discovering connections between Pragmatics and one’s own project.
