The Oita Text Forum (OTF) is pleased to invite
you to participate in Text & Context OTF
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
If you wish to attend the OTF Workshop 6,
please contact Keizo Nanri at keizo-nanri AT
Recommended accommodations will be posted onto
our official homepage at http://www.oitatextforum.com/.
Call for Presentations:
Specifically, we may explore questions such
- 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
- How are text structures (or schemata) stored
- 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
The OTF Workshop welcomes scholars from
different disciplinary backgrounds and hybrid
theories of text
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.
