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
