Université de la Manouba

On 18 April 2014
The English department at the Faculty of Letters, Arts, and Humanities La Manouba is
pleased to announce its first call for oral/power point presentations on the theme of
AUTHENTICITY which will be held on the 18th of April 2014.
More than ever in human history is authenticity in need to be rescued. The disquiets of
the modern age evidenced in the dissolution of the authority of tradition and the rise of liberal
thought have made of the quest for authenticity an urgent one. The global tendency of moving
–across physical and virtual places – of commodity and ideas, the permanent flux of
migration and immigration from third to first world countries, render any discussion of fixed
notions of authenticity – national, cultural, and linguistic – problematic.
In a climate of post-modern skepticism, a positive definition of authenticity would be
self-nullifying; its arbitrariness denies the possibility of any “representation” of reality or truth
as such. So, can we safely announce the end of authentic selfhood in the postmodern age?
Must we be inauthentic? Or can authenticity “become the new 'centre' after the decentring by
postmodernism”? (Gendlin 106)
In linguistics, the study of language was marked by the move from ‘idealized remote
abstractions’ to the development, description, and analysis of naturally occurring language
corpora. This shift towards the analysis of language in contexts of use and as experienced by
its users reflects endeavors for authenticity in linguistic research. The quest for authenticity
has also been echoed by the development, over decades, of learning and teaching theories
which shifted focus from form to use, used authentic rather than simplified texts, and
acknowledged the interaction of cognitive and social factors in language interpretation and
production. In applied linguistics, the concept developed beyond its initial reference which is
text authenticity to include other types of authenticity such as task, classroom, context,
learner, teacher, and interactional authenticity. This complex representation recognizes

authenticity as a multidimensional concept but also invites for more elaborate and reflective
practices of this concept.

-authenticity and literary expression: plagiarism, intertextuality,
-authenticity and literary production: autobiography and confessional writing
-authenticity and authorial voice
-authenticity and national belonging
-authenticity in historical and cultural studies
-authenticity and cultural identity
-authenticity and hybridization
-authenticity: theoretical definitions and practical concerns
-authenticity as a product or process
-ELT and the quest for authenticity
-authenticity between globalization and localization
-the role of ICT in promoting authenticity in language learning
-authenticity in speech production and perception
-authenticity as the drive for educational reforms
