PALA 2017

*Deadline Extended: January 29, 2017*

Interdisciplinary Stylistics

Stylistics has been an interdisciplinary enterprise since its infancy, emerging in the intersection between literary criticism and linguistics. M.A.K Haliday’s functionalist approach to the study of language led to the expansion of the scope of stylistics so as to incorporate social-semiotic concerns and methodologies and paved the way for a more context-sensitive approach to meaning-making. Critical stylistics, feminist stylistics, and pragmatic stylistics are some of the branches that emerged as a result of this expansion, and the field has not stopped growing since. PALA 2017 aims to investigate what interdisciplinarity currently means and invites papers that push the boundaries of the field and address new challenges for stylistics and its branches. We particularly invite papers that discuss how stylistics has embraced cognitive, corpus, pedagogical, multimodal, and neuroscientific methodologies to explore how (literary) texts work in addition to submissions from all the relevant areas.
