Meeting Description:

The conference aims at providing new insights on the contemporaneity of literary genres compared to text typology and discursive tradition. The classical division between poetry and prose, between the lyric, the epic and the tragic, between closed and open forms, etc., seems to be more and more unable to reflect “transversal genres” (e.g. vulgarisations), brief forms compared to longer texts, combined forms (e.g. tales, lyrical prose/ poème en prose, etc.) and the various types of contamination affecting the literary genre, such as the inflow of discursive traditions.

The literary text has been historically influenced by other types of texts: scientific/expositional, philosophical-religious/argumentative, etc., not only in terms of content, but also vocabulary, syntax and presumed text forms. It will be interesting to assess linguistic change depending the intentions of the examined authors, as well as the adjustment of the code depending on variables generally associated to parameters of the literary genre.

Dates: September 20-21, 2019
