Meeting Description:

Within cognitive poetics, the close stylistic analysis of literary texts has been relatively neglected in favour of more conceptual aspects of worlds, framing, foregrounding and deictic positioning. More broadly in cognitive literary studies, the centrality of textuality and texture is also in danger of being forgotten. This symposium welcomes discussions applying different aspects of cognitive and construction grammars to the analysis of literary texts and readings.

Call for Papers:

Participants should focus a 20 minute paper on a specific application of a literary text and reading. The aim will be to establish the utility of cognitive grammar in the service of literary stylistics.

The symposium will be restricted to 10 papers and no more than 25 participants. Papers should be submitted in revised written form within two months of the symposium, for publication in a thematic book collection.

By October 31, 2012, please send a short abstract of up to 150 words, specifying the literary text for analysis and which aspect of cognitive grammar will form the basis of the paper. If you would like to participate without presenting a paper, please also reply by this date to: aexwynottingham.ac.uk.
