Meeting Description:

Negotiation & Renegotiation
Department of French & Italian
Graduate Student Conference in Literature and Linguistics
Indiana University-Bloomington, March 1-2, 2013

'Negotiations, then, will never be motivated solely by ideals of truth and validity; there will always be an element of interest, mostly conflicting interest and, hence, of power, driving them forward.'
Anne Eriksen and Jón Vidhar Sigurdhsson, Negotiating Pasts in the Nordic Countries: Interdisciplinary Studies in History and Memory. (Sweden: Nordic Academic Press, 2010), 21.

This conference will examine the themes of Negotiation and Renegotiation in any area of French or Italian Studies. We shall examine such questions as: How do authors negotiate between seemingly conflicting themes or positions? How do texts negotiate between genres, periods, and styles? How do speakers negotiate meaning within and across languages/dialects? How do language learners negotiate acquisition?

Call for Papers:

We invite papers addressing the conference theme from a variety of perspectives within French and Italian studies and in related disciplines (art history, music, history, etc.):

Conflict and Resolution
Inflexibility/Failure to Compromise (absolutism)
Politics in Language and Literature
Authors on Trial and Censorship
Negotiating Negotiations
Negotiation of Collective Memory
Negotiation of Textual Space and Paratext (typography and marginalia)
Negotiation of Identity (national, regional, gender, linguistic)
Negotiation of Boundaries (genres, linguistic, geographical, gender)
Hybridity (of language, ideology, etc.) as a Result of Negotiation
Negotiation between Dominant Cultural Forces and 'the Other'
Monstrosity and the Human
Negotiating the Past
Language Contact
Second Language Acquisition

We invite those interested in our theme to submit an abstract (300 words maximum) by email to iufritgsoconfgmail.com before December 15, 2012. Presentations should not exceed 20 minutes. Papers may be submitted in English, French or Italian. Please include your institutional affiliation, contact information and a brief biography focusing on your work along with your abstract.
