Meeting Description:

The summer school aims at bringing together linguistic and literary knowledge and expertise to interpret selected literary texts. For this purpose we cordially invite graduate students from the fields of English Literature and English Linguistics who are interested in interdisciplinary research.

Together we will explore and discuss in how far linguistic methods are profitable for the literary analysis of a text and to what degree linguistics can profit from using literary texts as a corpus and a touchstone for linguistic theory.

The discussions will be guided by presentations of students and lectures of two invited scholars from the fields of linguistics and literature:

Dr. Gary Thoms
Literary Linguistics Advanced Research Group (Strathclyde)

Prof. Olga Fischer
Iconicity Research Project (Z├╝rich/Amsterdam)

Call for Papers:

Students who wish to participate should apply with an introduction to their field of research as well as a proposal for a presentation (1-2 pages) until August 1st 2011.

Applications should be sent to:
