ADculture open workshop

ADculture is a multilingual group. Whether its members practice contrastive discourse analysis, translation or a discourse interpretative approach, their aim is to improve their understanding of the way national culture and discourse are interwoven. In order to do so, they select a corpus which gets analyzed by everyone according to their specific methods, and the results are presented for discussion to the group.
The Convention on the Rights of the Child, a U.N. text meant to convey the same ideas across numerous languages and cultures and to harmonize the way children are treated around the world, is the corpus the group currently works on.
Meetings take place in Paris, three times a year and gather an average of 20 to 30 French and foreign participants. One of the group’s advantages is the variety and number of languages its members are able to cover.
