Thank you to all those who participated in, presented at, and volunteered for the inaugural American Pragmatics Conference and the 5th Intercultural Pragmatics Conference. We encourage you all to join our association to stay updated with current news and upcoming conferences. Don’t forget: Conference co-chairs Pilar G. Blitvich and Istvan Kecskes will be editing two volumes of selected papers from this year’s conference. Submissions, and any questions you may have, can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have recently launched the American Pragmatics Association (AMPRA). Our association comprises the countries of North, Central, and South America, and the Caribbean. AMPRA supports interaction and scholarly debate with particular regard to the linguistic, cognitive, social, inter-cultural and inter-language paradigms of pragmatics.
Don’t forget that U.S. Airways provides direct flights into Charlotte from many cities, including New York, Munich, Dublin, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Madrid, Chicago, Los Angeles, and many others.
Please note that our conference venue – UNC Charlotte’s Center City Building – is located in uptown Charlotte, not on the main UNC Charlotte campus.
All of the accommodations that we have recommended are uptown and within walking distance of the venue.
When: October 19-21, 2012
