Michael Haugh Disentangling face, facework and im/ politeness Desentrañando la imagen social, la actividad de imagen y la (des)cortesía Abstract: It is generally assumed in pragmatics that face is essentially a “so- cially attributed aspect of self”, and that politeness is one kind of facework, alongside other forms of facework such as impoliteness, mock impoliteness, mock politeness, self politeness and so on. In this paper, the assumed neces- sary link between face and im/politeness is questioned. Drawing from emic stu- dies of face and im/politeness, it is

Facework and im/politeness across legal contexts: An introduction DAWN ARCHER Abstract In this introductory essay, I outline some of the studies which have already explored facework and im/politeness in legal contexts: specifically, Lakoff (1989), Penman (1990), Archer (2008, under review), Limberg (2008) and Harris (forthcoming 2011). Having suggested ways in which these studies have helped to shape and advance current thinking on facework and im/politeness, in both legal contexts and also more generally, I move on to outline the papers in this special edition

DE GRUYTER MOUTON Journal of Politeness Research 2017; 13(1): 33–60 Victor Ho* Guarding the gate politically and politely: How accreditation teams do facework while gatekeeping DOI 10.1515/pr-2014-0017 Abstract: Accreditation is a quality assurance mechanism which evaluates either the capability of an institution to offer an academic program or the qual- ity of an academic program before its launch. Accredited institutions and pro- grams are allowed to enroll students, both fee-paying and non-fee-paying. The outcome of an accreditation exercise will therefore

Face as relational and interactional: A communication framework for research on face, facework, and politeness ROBERT B. ARUNDALE Abstract In a recent re-examination of face as related to politeness, Bargiela-Chiap- pini (2003: 1463) argues for examining “cultural conceptualizations of the social self and its relationship to others as an alternative and possibly more fruitful way of studying the relevance and dynamics of ‘face’ and ‘facework’ in interpersonal contacts”. One productive alternative account of the social self and hence of face draws on the well

A facework system of minimal politeness: Oral argument in appellate court KAREN TRACY Abstract This study describes the facework system in effect during oral argument in US state supreme courts. Drawing on two cases that occurred in the Cali- fornia Supreme Court in which attorneys and justices explored the legality of California’s marriage laws, the study argues that the facework system in operation during oral argument is one of minimal politeness. That facework system, one that uses selected address forms, argument meta-language, case references, and frequent

This process of defining or negotiating relationships in interaction is called “ facework or relational work ” ( Locher 2004: 51, italics original), and politeness is only one aspect of relational work ( Locher and Watts 2005). One key dimension of relational work - and how participants attend to their interpersonal goals - is the notion of face. The perspective of relational work asserts that face is discursively negotiated by participants in interpersonal interactions (Locher and Watts 2005). In other

15. Facework and identity Miriam A. Locher and Brook Bolander Abstract: This chapter reviews studies which focus on Internet users’ attempts to change (challenge, reinforce, negotiate) current or past, stereotypical, individual and/or group identities in interactions. It thereby acknowledges that the literature regularly draws on various theoretical conceptions of identity. Perspectives on identity range from sociolinguistic understandings of the impact of social variables on linguistic variation to constructivist and discursive negotiations of identity as
