Call for Papers:

The theme of this year’s conference will be Creative Style, and the organising committee particularly welcomes abstracts that address the notion of stylistics as a means of exploring creativity. However, we will be interested in any abstracts that explore broader areas of stylistics and, in particular, its relationships to other disciplines such as pragmatics, semantics, narratology, literary studies, cultural studies, language teaching, translation and others.

Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words to the conference email address:

Abstracts should be sent as Word attachments, and include your full name, affiliation, academic position, postal address, email address, the title of your paper and five keywords.

The deadline for submission of abstracts will be 30 January 2015.
