Between clarity and fuzziness.Investigating the concept of meaning in linguistic, literary and philosophical contexts / 5th Annual Siedlce Forum for Contemporary Issues in Language and Culture

Siedlce University of Natural Sciences and Humanities - Institute of Linguistics and Literary Studies and Universitat de les Illes Balears - Faculty of Philosophy and Art would like to kindly invite all scholars representing different philological disciplines and theoretical models to
5th Annual Siedlce Forum for Contemporary Issues in Language and Literature to be held online on November 27th, 2020 to present their research findings (not previously published or presented) in oral sessions in English.
The conference will be a virtual event.

The Annual Siedlce Forum for Contemporary Issues in Language and Literature is a conference organized by the Institute of Linguistics and Literature Studies (former Institute of Modern Languages and Interdisciplinary Research) at Siedlce University of Natural Sciences and Humanities since 2015.

The idea of launching an annual conference originated from the reviewed monograph series Forum for Contemporary Issues in Language and Literature started in 2014 with Volume I titled “Novel Approaches in Language, Literature and Culture Studies,” and continued in 2015 with Volume II “From Word to Discourse.” In order to open the series to authors from other research centres and facilitate the exchange of information with them, we decided to start a yearly discussion forum for everyone interested in topics ranging from literature and culture to linguistics.

We hope that our new undertaking will be welcomed by all scholars, who are warmly invited to attend it, share their research findings during a friendly face-to-face discourse and participate in the conference proceedings. 

Suggested Research Areas:

  • Literal vs. implied meaning
  • Authorial Strategies

THE 1ST BIAŁYSTOK CONFERENCE ON THEORETICAL AND APPLIED LINGUISTICS

In recent years linguistic conferences organized by the Białystok circle of neophilologists have established a strong tradition in terms of providing a forum for the exchange of views on the nature of language. It all started almost fifteen years ago, in 2002. The main aim of the conferences was to provide a meeting ground for a wide range of scholars: linguists, literary scholars, foreign language teaching methodologists, to mention but a few groups of researchers participating in the events. The conferences explored the relationship between language, culture, and social interaction. They were often organized in co-operation with French language scholars.

Comics in Culture/Culture in Comics

The aim of the conference is to present a wide array of perspectives of different forms of comics and their role in culture. Comics, as a unique combination of literature and visual arts, spanning from child entertainment, through popculture, to independent artistic expression, are a great source of interdisciplinary research. This is why we welcome entries on variety of topics exploring the relations between them and culture.
