Meeting Description:

SDAŠ 2012: The Changes in Epochal Paradigms and the Opportunities they
Offer for English Studies

More than a decade into the 21st century, we have yet to grasp fully the
age in which we are living. The Third International Conference of the
Slovene Association for the Study of English will address changes in
epochal paradigms and the opportunities they offer for English studies.

While English’s role as the predominant global language seems more assured
than ever, the traditional role of English studies is no longer obvious. As
well, the critical theoretical tools employed in the past – tools which
emerged from a context of static print and which were developed before the
rise of television, let alone the internet – do not always seem adequate
for examining today’s world.

What lies ahead for scholars of English and for English studies? For the
English language? How are we to theorize, to come to terms with, the
literary and real world that surrounds us? What is the role of the
traditional (or contemporary) canon in a context where reading has lost is
primacy? Are books and texts a bygone concept in the era of hypertext,
immediate electronic revision, and truly interactive reading/comment
experiences in online environments? Is language reduced to computer code as
content and speed trump form in text messages and sometimes even more
formal discourse? What is the broader role of culture in a world in which
everything is cultural, and in which culture and economy are intertwined to
an unprecedented degree?

The SDAŠ 2012 conference will take place from 10th to 12th May in
Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Keynote Speakers:

Prof. David Crystal (Honorary Prof. of Linuistics, University of Wales,
Bangor, UK) is a writer, editor, lecturer, and broadcaster. He is the
author of a number of books on linguistics and the English language. He is
perhaps best known for his work on language encyclopedias, phonetics,
phonology, endangered languages, internet linguistics and text language.

Prof. David Staines (University of Ottawa, Canada), the author and editor
of several scholarly books on topics ranging from Arthurian Romance to
Marshall McLuhan, has been especially instrumental in the development of
Canadian literature. He has been a driving force behind the Giller Prize,
Canada's primary award for fiction, and the Charles Taylor Prize, its
counterpart for Literary Non-Fiction. Professor Staines is general editor
of McClelland & Stewart's 'New Canadian Library.'
