Borders and Boundaries in/across Discourses

10-12 July 2024
Poznań, Poland
Adam Mickiewicz University

Call for Abstracts

We are pleased to announce that the next Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis Across Disciplines (CADAAD) conference will be organised and hosted by Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań. 

The conference will take place from 10-12 July 2024.

This year’s conference theme is Borders and boundaries in/across discourses. With the invasion of Ukraine, Europe has yet again seen people moving across borders in search for security and new life from yet another direction. Around the world, state borders are being fought over and people are more mobile than ever, including war, climate change, poverty, and post-COVID mobility.

However, the conference theme understands borders in a much broader way, including identity (self/other, us/them), time (past/present), politics (left/right, mainstream/extreme), and society (public/private), as well as borders within and between academic fields (quantitative/qualitative, interdisciplinarity) and those that exist between research and praxis.


The conference will be in-person only and online presentations will not be possible. Papers can be individually or co-presented. Presentations should be no more than 20 minutes. Abstracts for presentations should be 300 words (including references).

Deadline for abstracts: 24th November
