Meeting Description:

Science of Aphasia meeting VI, 2nd Call for Posters

The SoA conferences are intended to bring together established and junior
scientists working in the multidisciplinary field of neurolinguistics and
language neuroscience, both normal function and disorders. These are small
conferences, with a maximum of 100 participants, that ensure direct interaction
between the participants.

In the year 2005, the 6th SoA conference focuses on recovery and treatment of
aphasia, from basic neuroscience to clinic. Contributed papers are planned
primarily in the form of poster sessions, starting with brief oral presentations
to present the highlights of each poster (3-5 min), and with ample time for
discussion.

Science of Aphasia VI invites submission of abstracts for poster presentations
on any neurolinguistic research topic.

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics

Call Deadline: 01-Jun-2005

Meeting Description:

This conference will examine cultural and linguistic expressions of
internationalism in Britain and Europe at the turn of the last century.

This conference will examine cultural expressions of internationalism in Britain
and Europe at the turn of the last century. Flanked by the Franco-Prussian war
(1870-71) and the Great War (1914-18), the fin de siècle stands out as an era of
rising European militarism. Themes of national consolidation, isolation and
aggression have become key to any analysis of the period. However, what this
conference seeks to explore is the comcomitant drive towards an international
political and cultural identity. It invites papers which examine how artistic
and intellectual exchange between Britain and the Continent contributed to the
sense of a common European, even world culture, and to a counter-current of
political, internationalist optimism.

Topics may include, but need not be limited to:

- The proliferation of international cultural organisations at the fin de siècle

- Cultural repercussions of internationalist organisation

- Great Exhibitions as sites for international exchange

- Avant-garde theatre as a pan-European movement

- Art for art's sake and the transcendence of national boundaries

- The arts, internationalism and the peace movement

- Cosmopolitan individuals who acted as cultural mediators

- Lingua francas and artificial languages

- International journals and other publishing projects

- cultural contact between Britain and any individual European country or countries

Enquiries, and abstracts of up to 300 words together with a brief biography,
should be directed to Dr Grace Brockington, Clare Hall, Herschel Rd, Cambridge
CB3 9AL, UK, 01223 767 294, geb23cam.ac.uk.
