Linguistic Field(s): Ling & Literature

Call Deadline: 25-Jan-2016

Meeting Description:

Ten years in the life of a conference can be considered a noteworthy timespan. After in the past decade we dealt with various relevant social and humanistic topics such as politics, globalization, identity, change, communication, values, marginalization, discourse and meaning, from the point of view of literary studies and linguistics, for the theme of our 10th anniversary conference we have chosen time, as one of the fundamental domains of human experience. Language, literature and time are related in many ways. Most basically, both language and literature are the achievements of the human mind which are situated in time, and are used and developed in time, as historically and culturally determined. Further, one of the most fascinating mental feats is that human beings use language to situate and arrange events in time, that is, they use language as a means to structure, represent and conceptualize time. Finally, literature expands our understanding of time and the expression of our intellectual perception and emotional reactions to the temporal, atemporal and omnitemporal, through the interplay of various stylistic devices, chronology, temporal distortion, fragmentation and non-linearity.

The aim of the conference Language, Literature, Time is to address the phenomenon of time and the temporal perspective from the point of view of literary and linguistic disciplines, not only through historical literary and linguistic research, but also any other which is focused on formal, structural and genre devices for conceptualizing and expressing time, temporal relations and the development of language forms, functions and the approaches to literary and linguistic studies.

Conference languages are English and Serbian, for 15-minute presentations followed by 5 minute discussion time.
