“Experimental and Empirical Approaches to Politeness and Impoliteness” is an international and interdisciplinary conference dedicated to how perceptions of politeness and impoliteness are shaped through language and affect the utterance interpretation process. The conference, the first of its kind in the US, will take place in Urbana, IL, August 29-31, 2012.

“Empirical and Experimental Approaches to Politeness and Impoliteness” is the third in a series of international conferences dedicated to Linguistic Impoliteness and Rudeness (LIAR III) and the first in a series of im/politeness symposia organized annually since 2005 to be held outside Europe.

The specific aims of the conference are to:

– provide a platform for the presentation of the latest findings in im/politeness research, with an emphasis on innovative approaches that build on the methods of the sciences;
– promote dialogue between scholars based in different parts of the world who are carrying out im/politeness research;
– help identify areas of high priority within im/politeness research and help forge new international collaborations between linguists, social psychologists and cognitive scientists that will address these areas;
– heighten the profile of im/politeness research among scholars and graduate students in the United States, and the Midwest in particular, by showcasing its theoretical and methodological reach, and potential for cross-disciplinary engagement.
