Conversation as a subject matter of interdisciplinary research
Languages of publication
The paper aims to map the field of interest in conversation as a phenomenon in various arts (cultural history, social science, linguistics) in the last few decades, assuming that the field was established in order to differentiate it from other similar notions such as a dialogue. What has become the centre of attention is the acknowledgement of conversation as a social, cultural and linguistic phenomenon, the main function of which in different periods of time and social environments has been that of social stabilization, and the various forms of which can be studied using as sources the oral as well as written records, which enables access to the historical forms of conversational culture. The writer offers a mutual confrontation between several attempts at defining conversation and formulates competences and certain tasks which can be faced by literary research on conversation.
