Meeting Description

The Historical Perspective in Literary Linguistics, a workshop preceding the
2008 PALA conference on Time and the Text, to be held in Sheffield, July 2008

Call for Papers for a Workshop on

Historical Stylistics

When modern stylistics established itself as a separate discipline in the 1960s,
it adopted the same stance towards its subject - synchronic, structuralist - as
was then dominant in its parent disciplines, linguistics and literary criticism.
In the 1980s, both literary and linguistic studies witnessed a return to
history, with the rise of New Historicism in literary criticism and a resurgence
of interest in historical linguistics among language scholars (the International
Conference in English Historical Linguistics, for instance, held its first
meeting in 1979). For some reason (which it would be interesting to explore),
the historical turn has not been replicated in stylistics. A scan of the
articles in Language and Literature or the papers at PALA conferences over the
last two decades reveals very few attempts to address historical material and
even fewer to articulate a historical method. Sheffield is something of an
exception to this generalisation, being home to a group of scholars whose
interest in 'time and the text' takes the form of attending to the ways in which
the historical circumstances of a text's production shape its form and
interpretation. We therefore invite participants at PALA 2008 - and others who
may be interested - to join us for a workshop on 'The Historical Perspective in
Literary Linguistics' on the day preceding the opening of the conference itself.
For those who attended PALA 2007, the workshop offers a chance to pursue,
complicate or contest the argument launched by Sylvia Adamson in the final
plenary: 'why stylistics should go to HEL'.

Date: 23rd July 2008
Place: University of Sheffield

Offers of papers (preferably accompanied by abstracts of 100-200 words) should
be sent to:
Sylvia Adamson (s.adamsonsheffield.ac.uk) or Jane Hodson (j.hodsonsheffield.ac.uk)

to be received no later than 31 January 2008

The presentations will be divided up by a thematic commission into oral
presentations and poster presentations.
All presentations, oral, poster, or guest-speakers and interdisciplinary, as
