International Conference:

BEYOND BOUNDARIES? CITIZENS, CULTURES AND LANGUAGES IN THE NEW EUROPE

10-12 November 1994

The European Studies Research Institute (ESRI), University of Salford, is
marking its first anniversary with a cross-disciplinary conference. ESRI
is organised in four centres: LANGUAGE & LINGUISTICS, Contemporary History &
Politics, Literary & Cultural Studies and Policy Studies. The Conference,
organised around the emergence of a new Europe, is intended to bring together
researchers who wish to cross disciplinary boundaries and address both specific
and general issues having to do with the recomposition and reconstruction of
Europe at many levels (LINGUISTIC, socio-political, historical, literary,
cultural, economic and environmental).

The Conference will be organised in the form of keynote plenary papers which
will address common, overarching issues, and provide a focus for a series of
parallel sessions corresponding to the more specialised interests of the
various centres.

The core issues which will be addressed in the sessions will include:

LINGUISTIC MINORITIES AND LANGUAGE POLICIES IN EUROPE; CULTURAL AWARENESS
AND LANGUAGE; CULTURAL DIFFERENCE AND TRANSLATION; Literature and identity;
Critical theory and European writing; Shaping the new Europe - convergence
or divergence?; Democracy, minorities and the nation state; Environmental
policy-making in Europe.

Speakers will include:

JACQUES DURAND (Salford)
CHARLOTTE HOFFMANN (Salford)
NIGEL VINCENT (Manchester)
JOHN LAVER (Edinburgh & British Academy)
