Meeting Description:

The Poetics of Multilingualism - La Poétique du Plurilinguisme
International Colloquium, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, 4-5-6 April 2013

The goal of the conference is to focus on poetical, metrical, and linguistic principles in bilingual and multilingual texts. It aims to present the interactions of different literary traditions with their specific constraints, as well as the way multilingual texts obey or oppose established compositional rules and principles.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

- Multilingualism and the birth of vernacular literatures
- Poetical code-switching in multilingual texts
- Rhythmic, metrical, and poetic imitation in multilingual poems
- Generic classification of multilingual texts in poetical treatises
- Multilingualism and polyphonic music
- Multilingualism and the birth of vernacular literatures
- Multilingualism and glossolalia
- Adopting foreign poetical patterns by integrating foreign languages
- Oral performance of multilingual texts and reading out multilingual texts
- Multilingualism and formulaic language
- Multilingualism as a formal constraint: the Oulipo and the plurality of languages

Jacqueline Cerquiglini-Toulet (Universite de Paris-Sorbonne)
