Titre :

At the intersection of the domains : the terminology of the sustainable development

Résumé :

This talk will discuss recent work on creating and sharing the EU CONNEXUS termbase, a new terminological resource to support experts and students in integrating different fields of knowledge in the domain of sustainability. Our work takes into account different levels of disciplinary integration from multi to inter and trans, drawing on knowledge from different disciplines and requiring joint efforts from multiple stakeholders. A corpus-based approach is used to identify different fields of expertise that contribute to sustainable development. For this purpose we use the Courses Catalogue of the Minor Program in Coastal Development and Sustainable Maritime Tourism which is oriented to 5 key sectors : Biodiversity and Coastal Zone Management, Environmental Education, Human Geography, Sustainable Tourism and Coastal Engineering. Also discussed is the choice of an appropriate model for the termbase that can benefit from both reductionist and contextual approaches and the use of inclusive logic for transdisciplinary knowledge creation (instead of Classical exclusive logic) that assumes that things that are normally seen as antagonistic or contradictory can temporarily be reconciled to create new transdisciplinary knowledge.
