Meeting Description:

Institute of English at the University of Silesia, has the pleasure to announce the second international conference titled Various Dimensions of Contrastive Studies / Różne wymiary studiów kontrastywnych (V-DOCS 2015). Although the tradition of contrastive studies has a very long history, the approach to this type of studies has been constantly changing with the emergence of new linguistic theories and approaches to understanding the notion of language. Today, the scope of contrastive studies ranges from formal approaches to functional and pragmatic perspectives, from structuralism and generativism to cognitivism, and from theoretical analyses to corpus linguistics.

The conference aims at focusing on a variety of possible approaches to contrasting languages. Following the warm acceptance and success of the first edition of the V-DOCS conference in 2014, once again we want to welcome academics who represent various methodologies and perspectives on linguistic analysis: formal, functional, cognitive-semantic, pragmatic and cultural.

We are pleased to announce that the following speakers have expressed their agreement to present plenary lectures during the conference:

Prof. dr hab. Pavel Štekauer (Pavol Jozef Šafárik University, Košice)
Prof. UAM dr hab. Małgorzata Fabiszak (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań)
Prof. dr hab. Leszek Berezowski (University of Wrocław)
Dr hab. Adam Wojtaszek (University of Silesia, Katowice)
