The International Communication Styles conference is the fifth in the series of biannual conferences which were initiated in 2013 and took place four times in Krosno, Poland. This time, after a pandemic break, we would like to invite international scholars to the city of Krakow, Poland.
We welcome papers related to all aspects of communication styles, broadly understood as clusters of features of verbal and nonverbal language that run the spectrum of discourses, genres and media and mark social and cultural differences. The 5th ICS Conference brings into focus the theme of communication in times of permacrisis, recently named the Collins Word of the Year 2022 and understood as “an extended period of instability and insecurity”. It aims to examine the diverse effects of social, political, economic, and cultural conflicts in public and private communication across cultures and genres.
