The Oita Text Forum (OTF) is pleased to invite you to participate in Text & Context OTF Workshop 6.

Text & Context OTF Workshop 6 focuses on fundamental elements in understanding the relationship between text and context. OTF views ‘text’ as not restricted to the written or spoken mode of communication. ‘Text’ is meant to be any mode of meaning representation such as paintings, sculptures, film, architecture, dance, music, etc.

What is the OTF?

The Oita Text Forum was founded in August 2009 by 5 scholars in Japan and China. The goals of the OTF are to:

- Provide an open forum where researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds can exchange information and share knowledge of how texts are produced and structured,
- Elucidate the process of text generation from social or cognitive or socio-cognitive perspectives.

If you wish to attend the OTF Workshop 6, please contact Keizo Nanri at keizo-nanri AT oita-u.ac.jp.


Recommended accommodations will be posted onto our official homepage at http://www.oitatextforum.com/.

Call for Presentations:

Specifically, we may explore questions such as:

- What is the relationship between text and the context of situation?
- What can we say about (the context of) culture in relation to text generation/creation/composition? And how does the former affect the latter?
- What is the relationship between the context of situation and material situational setting?
- How are text structures (or schemata) stored in memory?
- How does the retrieval of information from memory create a text?
- What knowledge can be recognised in the psychological process of text generation/creation/composition and what stimulus retrieves it from memory?
- What neuropsychological processes are involved in text generation/creation/composition?

The OTF Workshop welcomes scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds and hybrid theories of text generation/creation/composition.

You may present a 30-minute long paper (a 20-minute presentation, followed by a 10-minute discussion) or a 60-minute workshop.

Please send a 500-word abstract (if you wish to present a paper) or a 700-word abstract (if you wish to present a workshop), to keizo-nanri AT oita-u.ac.jp. Workshops must be interactive and involve the audience, and abstracts must clearly outline how the workshop will proceed. The deadline for abstract submission is 31st October 2014.
