Inhalt: In an era of advancing globalisation, applied linguists are compelled to reconsider long-standing assumptions about the development of pragmatic competence. In the context of English as an international language (EIL), where English is used as a medium of communication among speakers of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, researchers need to reconceptualise pragmatic competence based on how EIL users can make sense of and navigate communicative demands through metapragmatic awareness of their own vs. others’ cultural norms and by using communication strategies skilfully while negotiating their identities (Taguchi & Ishihara 2018). Similarly, it is desirable for the assessment of pragmatic competence to move away from the dependence on idealised native-speaker models of correctness and appropriateness and instead incorporate a more functional and non-essentialist viewpoint (Li 2020). This course reviews recent advances in theorising and researching pragmatic competence under the EIL framework and aims to help participants learn how to build analytical tools for competence assessment. A special focus will be laid on speech-act performance and (meta)pragmatic awareness in the context of peer feedback. Relevant data and literature recommendations will be provided ahead of the seminar.
