Call For Papers

COLDOC2013 call for paper

COLDOC 2013 aims to examine the notion of genre in a multidisciplinary approach and to illustrate the variety of both theoretical and practical problems it raises. The call for papers is open to a wide variety of contributions that can help identify an essential category for interpretation.

Although it has long remained been restricted to taxonomic approaches, the issue of genre categorisation sees new developments thanks to the interest it has raised in various humanities disciplines, gradually integrating different aspects in their definitional approaches: contexts of utterance, medium (written or spoken), language norms, social practices, etc.

This renewal is also expressed by the fact that the studies less systematically seek to define it through production rules or classificatory categories, but rather try to examine the question of genre through the process of recognition and interpretation. Theoretical approaches and case studies tend to focus on the addressee’s point of view: horizons of expectations, habits, cultural pre-conceptions, cognitive framework, communication circuit, etc. The genre is then modeled as a set of constraints or necessary conditions of meaning.

COLDOC 2013, bringing contributions from diverse backgrounds, aims to review the state of the art and the diversity of work on genres. Relying on theoretical and applied propositions, COLDOC 2013 aims to suggest new descriptive categories needed in the search for meaning in written and oral discourse. This 2013 edition of COLDOC therefore strongly encourages participation from masters students, PhD students candidates and young researchers in general linguistics, corpus linguistics, sociolinguistics, computational linguistics (written or speech) and, more generally, any area that would be interested in the study of genres.

Several issues - solely as examples - can be considered as sources of inspiration. These issues, both theoretical and practical, highlight the variety of possible approaches in the study of textual and oral genres:

Why categorize according to genres? How should boundaries between genres be established?
How should genres be defined, formalized and modeled?
What are the dynamics implied in genre building?
What are the implied relation(s) between ‘genre’ and ‘linguistic operations’ (describe, summarize, tell…)?
Does genre influence grammatical phenomena?
What are the sociolinguistic instantiations of genre?
How can usage, variety and language registers linguistic variables become genre-specific social markers?
How does corpus linguistics answer to genre study?
How can genre study in written productions be applied to oral genres and vice versa?
What observables is genre assignment based on? Can it be automatically calculated?
What is the role of genre as a tool for teaching and learning language and literature?
How can we categorize and interpret the emergence of new linguistic practices according to new communication devices (forums, blogs, social networks, chats, tweets, emails, etc.)?
Do techniques for automatic analysis of texts and discourses question or redistribute the categorization into genres? Do they contribute to other forms of categorization?
Is the oral-written distinction a major distinction in the study of genres?
How can genre be accounted for in the development of NLP resources (lexicon, grammar, parsers, etc.)?


free for all participants


Paper proposal should be a maximum of 3 pages (see submission guidelines on COLDOC2013 site) and should be made via the EasyChair page of COLDOC2013.
Every paper will be blind reviewed by at least 2 members of the scientific committee.
The COLDOC2013 contributions be followed by a special publication of selected papers.
