M. Kanter presented Im/polite Matters: Creative Texts and Projects with a power point presentation of Im/politeness: One Hundred Im/polite Days by Marjorie Kanter at the 4th International Conference on Intercultural Pragmatics and Communication (15-17 November 2010). This is an artist’s project meant for reflection and dialogue on communication and incommunication in general and politeness and impoliteness in particular; both within a culture and crossing cultures. The texts were generated and then posted one per day between December 2, 2009 and March 11, 2010 on Tweeter and Facebook (and have become a book ISBN 978-84-614-2674-4) as part of Ms. Kanter’s participation in the London Word Festival. Following the 144 character maximum per entry allowed on Twitter, the 100+2 entries investigate, experiment, create, reflect, document and invite dialogue/participation. These tweets include creative texts, questions, quotes, statements, cartoons, references, film/video, etc. Readers are invited/incited to join in dialogue provoked/sparked by these short texts.
