Meeting Description:

International Conference
École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (Lyon, France)
3-4 April 2014
‘Personal Pronouns in Linguistics and Stylistics’
Organized by Laure Gardelle (ENS de Lyon, UMR ICAR) and Sandrine Sorlin (EMMA, Institut Universitaire de France)

The aim of this conference is to bring together a cross-section of recent research on personal pronouns in linguistics and stylistics. In the past twenty years or so these functional words, which used to be regarded as mere ‘short-hand devices’ substituting for a noun phrase, have been shown to be central to a number of complex domains, as illustrated by cross-linguistic studies on such topics as agreement (e.g. Corbett 1991, 2000 for gender and number, Siewierska 2004 for person), pronoun typology (Bhat 2004) or pronominal anaphora (e.g. Ariel 1990, Gundel et al. 1993, Huang 1994). Personal pronouns have also been studied more sporadically in Critical Discourse Analysis and literary stylistics with a focus on the construction of subjectivities and addressees.

Keynote Speakers:

Catherine Emmott (University of Glasgow)
Michel Le Guern (Université Lyon 2)
Katie Wales (University of Nottingham)

Colloque international
École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (Lyon, France)
3-4 avril 2014
« Les pronoms personnels : approches linguistiques et stylistiques »
Organisé par Laure Gardelle (ENS de Lyon, UMR ICAR) et Sandrine Sorlin (EMMA, Institut Universitaire de France)

Ce colloque vise à réunir des travaux récents sur les pronoms personnels en linguistique et en stylistique. Les recherches menées au cours des vingt dernières années ont en effet montré que ces mots fonctionnels, traditionnellement considérés comme de simples « substituts abréviatifs » de syntagmes nominaux, se trouvaient au cœur de problématiques complexes - on pense notamment aux études translinguistiques sur l’accord (ex. Corbett 1991, 2000 pour le genre et le nombre, Siewierska 2004 pour la personne), la typologie des pronoms (Bhat 2004) ou l’anaphore pronominale (ex. Ariel 1990, Gundel et al. 1993, Huang 1994). Les pronoms personnels ont aussi été étudiés de façon plus sporadique en analyse de discours (en Critical Discourse Analysis notamment) et en stylistique littéraire, dans des travaux portant sur la construction de la subjectivité et de l’altérité.

Conférenciers invités :

Catherine Emmott (University of Glasgow)
