This year's plenary speaker will be acclaimed sociologist John O'Neill from York

We welcome proposals for 20-minute presentations in English that integrate
literature, linguistics and cultural studies with the following themes and
- Modern and Contemporary Bodies: the diasporic body, the racialized body, the
modified body.
- Resisting Bodies: the martyred body, the tortured body.
- Protean Bodies: the hermaphroditic and other versatile bodies; the gendered
consequences of mind/body interaction.
- Creative Bodies: performance, film, music and other aesthetic experiences.
- Expressive Bodies: languages in contact, language variation and change.
The list suggests a wide array of topics, however, it is not meant to be
exhaustive nor limiting in its scope. Submissions from all disciplines and time
