Call for Papers:

The 6th conference of the International Association of Literary Semantics (IALS) will take place at the University of Kent, Canterbury, from Thursday to Saturday, 3-5 July 2014.

We will be interested in any abstracts that make use of language-based explorations of how literary works get and/or make their meanings, and, particularly, in discussions of potential future directions for work at the language/literature border (for example, within the domain of multimodality).

Abstracts for 20-minute papers (plus 10 minutes discussion) may be submitted by email to IALS2014kent.ac.uk, preferably as an attachment in Word or similar, from now onwards.

Submitted abstracts should include the submitter’s full name (including any academic title), their mailing address as well as their email address, their university affiliation if applicable. If applicable, they should also state whether they are a registered student (BA, MA, or PhD) and identify the university and department in which they are studying. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words (excluding title and references), and should be sent by 31 January 2014.

It is important that submissions supply all of the above information.

Please contact the organising committee in relation to any questions that might arise, or with proposals for panels.

Please send all queries to: IALS2014kent.ac.uk
