instant epoch memory forecast time zone longue durée narrative

Law records the past Law commands the future

Life is lived in the passage of time. We remember and we project. Is it always so clear what is past and what is future? Is time an arrow (pointing one way) or a compass (by which we orient ourselves)?

What impact does our signification of time have on our experience of it? Is it digital or analog?

Do historical periods make their mark on law? How does law impact on the spirit of the times?

How does time signify law? How does law read, recognise or represent the signs of the times?

How does law signify time? In what tense is it written, pronounced or lived?

Proposed papers should address the title and its semiotic intention. Young researchers working in related areas are particularly encouraged to participate.

Proposals (a title + max 200 words) should be sent by 31 January 2007 to:

Conference Theme : The Function of Mother Tongue Literature in Mother Tongue Education

Purpose : Literature education has been laid great emphasis upon in compulsory education of every advanced country around the world. Mother tongue Literature in mother tongue education should certainly play a very important role in Taiwan as well. Mother tongue education in Taiwan has been practiced for more than four years. Has mother tongue literature played an important role the way as it has been expected? Has its function been elaborated? How have the mother tongue literature and mother tongue education been carried into practice in other countries?
