Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis

Meeting Description:

International Symposium
Sorbonne Paris Cité
Self-Talk: Forms and Practices
Dates: September 10-12 2012
Location: Paris, France

What is a monologue? Under what conditions may it arise? If we consider theater monologue, logorrhea, children’s egocentric language and even psychoanalysis as forms of self-talk, are there common criteria for defining monologues or do these forms vary radically? How can we describe them, both in terms of their linguistic properties and as expressions of their speakers’ subjectivity? The issues raised by monologues are numerous. Rarely studied from a multidisciplinary perspective, monologues allow human beings to question how they relate to the self, to language and to others.

A multidisciplinary perspective would permit both a better grasp of the specifics of each type of monologue and how they relate to each other, as well as facilitate a more fruitful interchange of knowledge and conceptual tools among various fields.

We propose a multidisciplinary conference addressing these questions. The conference will consist of 30-minute scientific presentations and plenary talks alternating with live performances by guest musicians, comedians, and story-tellers.

Invited Keynote Speakers:

Kirill O. Thompson, National Taiwan University (Philosophy)

Anders Holmberg, Newcastle University (Linguistics)

Special Guest:

Katherine Nelson, City University of New York (Psychology)

The detailed conference program will be posted after abstract selection.
