Meeting Description:

The 26th International Conference of the Poetics and Linguistics Association
(PALA) is to be held in Joensuu, Finland. Situated amongst the beautiful lakes
district of Eastern Finland, Joensuu (which means mouth of the river) is the
regional capital of the province of North Karelia, which shares its border with
Russia. We offer exceptional facilities amongst pristine natural surroundings.

There has been much debate in recent years within the broad domain of stylistics
about how to define this field of investigation. This same debate most recently
arose at our last gathering in Huddersfield (July 2005). How has stylistics
evolved since the early 1970s? How do we define ''stylistics'' today? What are
its aims? How do we go about meeting these aims? Can we realistically reach a
consensus? How viable is stylistics in the 21st century? What could be its main
contributions? To what extent is stylistics an interdisciplinary venture? The
purpose of this conference is to reflect upon these broad questions: to consider
what state the state of stylistics is in.

We invite you to submit papers that reflect upon the wide range of methodologies
and outlooks that have evolved within this field during the latter half of the
20th century whilst considering how they reflect upon the core purpose of
stylistic investigation and indeed just what this core might be. It would also
be interesting to discuss what impact stylistics might have in future years to come.
