The 2015 conference of the Poetics and Linguistics Association (PALA) will take place at the University of Kent, Canterbury, England from 15th-18th July 2015.
The theme of this year’s conference will be Creative Style, and the organising committee
particularly welcomes abstracts that address the notion of stylistics as a means of exploring creativity. However, we will be interested in any abstracts that explore broader areas of stylistics and, in particular, its relationships to other disciplines such as pragmatics, semantics, narratology, literary studies, cultural studies, language teaching, translation and others.
Confirmed keynote speakers:
• Peter Blair (University of Chester)
• Siobhan Chapman (University of Liverpool)
• Joanna Gavins (University of Sheffield)
• Marina Lambrou (Kingston University London)
• Jennifer Riddle Harding (Washington & Jefferson College)
Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words to the conference email address:
Abstracts should be sent as Word attachments, and include your full name, affiliation, academic position, postal address, email address, the title of your paper and five keywords.
The deadline for submission of abstracts will be 30th January 2015.
Please send all queries to: PALA2015@kent.ac.uk
