"Lendület" kutatási pályázatot nyert el Kádár Zoltán Dániel az MTA Nyelvtudományi Intézetében



Kádár Zoltán Dániel "Lendület" kutatásának rövid angol nyelvű összefoglalása:

The project aims to explore the interface that exists between interpersonal communication and ritual. In a technical sense, ritual is an interpersonal action through which social groups maintain what they perceive as the normative order of things. The notion of ritual thus not only involves scripted texts, such as prayers, as the popular understanding of 'ritual' indicates', but rather it covers a broad set of social interactions in ordinary social life. For example, 'appropriately' conducting a business transaction, mediating between conflictive parties, and intervening in a scene of public injustice are all ritual actions. Certain rituals, such as collegial rites of passage in the workplace, are interpreted as constructive parts of a person's life, while other rituals such as expelling an inept community member tend to be regarded as a 'necessary' evil; both relationally constructive and destructive rituals tend to be endorsed by a community, and the performer of a ritual animates the voice of the community. While people tend to take the characteristics of such ritual actions for granted, rituals tend to operate significantly differently across cultures, and often seemingly similar ritual actions animate different moral orders. Ritual is thus highly important from interactional and intercultural perspectives, and yet this phenomenon has not been extensively studied from an intercultural angle. The examination of ritual opens up new theoretical vistas in pragmatics and intercultural communication, and could have an important impact potential, specifically, as its exploration could reveal information about certain intercultural misunderstandings within and across national cultures. The present project aims to address this knowledge gap. The results of the project will not only be relevant to academic experts, but also to stakeholders and policy makers in the public education sector. In the project we plan to examine both national cultures (e.g. Chinese, Hungarian) and other layers of culture, such as minority cultures (viz. that of Romani minority).
