Meeting Description:

Subjectivity and intersubjectivity are at the core of any interaction and creative work. Subjectivity refers to the fact that speakers and writers, authors and presenters do not only convey content, but also express themselves, weaving attitudes, assessments and emotions into their texts and works. Intersubjectivity refers to relations with the discourse Annual conference of the Centre for Excellence in Estonian Studies: “Subjectivity and Intersubjectivity in Language and Culture,” May 12-13, 2022, Tartu, Estonian Literary Museum and University of Tartu.

Subjectivity and intersubjectivity are at the core of any interaction and creative work. Subjectivity refers to the fact that speakers and writers, authors and presenters do not only convey content, but also express themselves, weaving attitudes, assessments and emotions into their texts and works. Intersubjectivity refers to relations with the discourse partner(s) woven into the text or work: the listener, reader, audience, co-presenter, another character in the work, or another work. Thus, these phenomena can be found in different spheres of activity of the Centre for Excellence in Estonian Studies. We invite discussion about what is common and what is distinctive in (inter)subjectivity in language, literature, folk culture, music, philosophy, and computer interaction, as well as what connections can be identified between different types of (inter)subjectivity. Proposals for workshops are welcomed.

Call for Papers:

We await papers addressing different aspects of (inter)subjectivity, such as:
- (means of) expression of modality, deicticity, expressiveness, and emotionality
- entrenchment of (inter)subjectivity in grammar
- discourse actions and their means of expression in language and creative work
- (inter)subjectivity in computer interaction
- corpus studies of (inter)subjectivity
- politeness and impoliteness
- truth-telling and lying
- authentic, imitated and altered (inter)subjectivity
- (inter)subjectivity in different genres, text types, and registers
- (inter)subjectivity in beliefs and mythology
- performance as collaboration

The working languages of the conference are Estonian, English, Russian, and German.
