Meeting Description:

Third International Conference of the Belgian Association of Anglicists in Higher Education (BAAHE)

VARIETIES OF VOICE - 3rd international BAAHE conference
7-9 December 2006, University of Leuven, Belgium

The Belgian Association of Anglicists in Higher Education (BAAHE) will organize its Third International Conference from 7 to 9 December 2006 at the University of Leuven, Belgium.

This interdisciplinary conference will explore the role played by VOICE in various fields of English studies. It will consider:
* the synchronic and diachronic ways in which the (subjective) voice of the language user manifests itself linguistically, i.e. in the constructional properties of syntagms used,
* those aspects of academic English that are relevant to helping learners find an appropriate academic voice in speaking and writing.
* the literary status of 'voice': we will inquire into the impact of recent theoretical and/or technological developments on how the concept is handled in literary studies,

Paper proposals are invited on the following questions and issues:

(inter-)subjective motivations of voice such as
-choice of active vs. passive voice for optimal negotiation of information between speaker/hearer;
-evaluative and other subjective effects of middle constructions;
subjective vs. more objective constructions (e.g. subjective vs. objective modality);
speech and thought representation: representational vs. subjective uses, their impact on point of view;
the diachronic shift from representational to interpersonal import of constructions;
other aspects of interpersonal varieties of voice.

ELT-Academic English
author stance in academic writing: differences between disciplines and cultures (e.g. hedging)
register varieties: formality in academic genres; diachronic developments
citation strategies: how and why do writers incorporate other voices in their own writing?
presentation and seminar skills: tone and register; strategies to voice comments and objections
Exploring the differences between native and non-native speakers, or between learners and experienced speakers, should yield insights into how EAP materials can help learners construct an appropriate academic voice.

Is voice still part of 'what is at stake in modernity', as Barthes once argued?
After deconstruction, does voice exist hors texte? How does it relate to écriture?
What is the relation between voice and (point of) view? How does a textual voice acquire authority?
To what extent is voice a gendered concept?
Can a literary voice travel across cultures, periods and languages? Is it bound to cultural identity?
Do different voices always imply Bakhtinian polyphony? Does the single, lyrical voice survive in poetry? How crucial is voice in drama and film?

Plenary speakers: Suzanne Kemmer (Rice University), Ken Hyland (University of London), Anne Fogarty (University College Dublin).

Selected proceedings will be published in the 2007 issue of the international journal BELL.

Abstracts (up to 500 words) should be sent before 15 June 2006 to
