The Rome workshop, which will take place on Tuesday 27.09.2022, will showcase some of the work recently conducted by Action members, notably through a presentation of its recently published collective volume titled The Pandemic of Argumentation (2022, Springer). The first half of the workshop will also feature talks by three of the contributors to the volume, who will present their own contribution and reflexions on how the research they conduct illuminates aspects of public communication in the global crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, from a range of complementary argumentative perspectives (AI, legal scholarship and critical discourse analysis).
In the 2nd half of the workshop, the leaders of the Action’s 3 Working Groups will briefly report on their progress. These reports will be followed by two presentations (WG1 and WG3) that are representative of the work conducted within their respective Working Groups, and are meant to showcase the type of research questions the Action has generated, together with detailed accounts of how to tackle them. Note that the outputs of Working Group 2 will be presented during the ECA APPLY plenary panel, scheduled to take place on Thursday 28.09.2022 from 17:30 to 18:30.
