Meeting Description:

This 1-day event brings together leading researchers from the international Poetics and Linguistics Association (PALA) and the French Société de Stylistique Anglaise (SSA), with the aim of forming closer connections between these two organisations. It follows a successful joint symposium at the Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3, organised by the SSA in September 2011. This latest symposium focuses on the differences and commonalities of practice that exist in English and French stylistics. The language of the symposium is English.
