for postgraduate researchers in Cognitive Linguistics to exchange ideas and
present new research.

The conference will also feature plenary talks and workshops by the following
invited speakers:

Dr Vyvyan Evans (University of Sussex): keynote lecture on ''The Cognitive
Linguistics Enterprise: An Overview''

Prof. Gilles Fauconnier (University of California San Diego): a workshop on
conceptual blending theory

Call Deadline: 01-Mar-2006

Meeting Description:

ESSE (European Society for the Study of English) Conference, ESSE 8,Institute of
English Studies (IES),University of London


Despite age-old discussions, Shakespeare's ever-renewed interest in the issue of
language per se still requires investigation and new vistas of reflection. The
seminar will take a particular, but not exclusive, interest in tropes as a way
of considering Shakespeare at the intersection of stylistics and linguistics.
One of the important issues at stake will be the isolated status of metonymy as
an orphan figure too often upstaged by its eminent tropical counterpart,
metaphor. All contributions drawing on the models and terminology provided by
multifarious aspects of linguistics are relevant, e.g. discourse analysis,
pragmatics, literary semantics, stylometry, corpus/computer text analysis etc.

Convenor: Dr Mireille Ravassat (University of Valenciennes)
Co-convenor: Dr Jonathan Hope (Strathclyde University) jonathan.r.hopestrath.ac.uk
Please send your abstracts directly to both convenors.
Deadline: 1 March 2006

Seminar papers will not be read at the meeting but summarised in such a way as
to encourage discussion. Convenors will ask successful proposers to present
their paper as a 4-page abstract, if they have not already done so; and to
provide a 100-word summary of the abstract to be published on the Conference
website. Each seminar will allow a maximum of six participants and will be
limited to a single two-hour session.
