Meeting Description:

On behalf of the LLV Organising Committee, it is our pleasure to send you the first Call for Papers containing information on the forthcoming multidisciplinary conference Language, Literature, Values, organized by the English Department of the Faculty of Philosophy in Niš, which will be held on April 27 and 28, 2012.

A cynic knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing, declares a character from a play by Oscar Wilde. On the other hand, dangerous consequences of the absence of values are succinctly stated in the adage 'those who stand for nothing will fall for anything'.

In the cynical times of liberal capitalism, when personal and national identities undergo numerous changes due to globalization and global/local politics - which were some of the themes explored in our previous conferences - a conference focused on values seems wholly appropriate, not only because it unifies all the previous themes, emerging logically from them, but also because now is an ideal moment for the critical examination of what we stand for, as individuals, nations and, in the widest sense, citizens of the world.

Conference fee is 30 Euros.

Call for Papers:

The idea behind the conference is to examine the construction, dissemination, deconstruction and/or questioning of personal, cultural, national, linguistic, aesthetic, ethical and family values from the perspectives of linguistic and literary studies. Papers could also deal with values in the sense of functional, formal, normative and stylogenic parameters in language and literature, as well as the multidisciplinary study of the relationship between language, literature and values.

Conference languages are English and Serbian.

If you would like to participate, please fill in the application form below and submit it no later than January 15, 2012 to the following address:
