Meeting Description:

Although relatively recent, the CELLTTS has already established itself as a traditional anglophone conference, well recognised in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region. The members of its Organising and Programme Boards are the academic staff (professors and instructors) employed at the English Language and Literature Department of the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Sarajevo. Our goal is the promotion of academic research primarily in the various (sub)fields in English language and linguistics, cultural studies, literatures in English, teaching studies (ESL/ESP) and translation and interpreting studies. The conference is held biennially.

Call for Papers:

As the globalized world of the early 21st century is facing multiple social, cultural, economic, ecological and political challenges, it seems that gender has remained a prominent factor in contemporary constructions and/or notions of identity, informing any number of theoretical assessments and analyses across disciplines, and constituting a significant driving force behind practical governmental, non-governmental, activist, academic, non-academic or civil society’s agendas and platforms for action. Also gender continues provoking heated cultural debates and polarizations, just as we witness its revived instrumentalization by various rightwing and extremist doctrines and groups. We are interested in re-examining and re-contextualizing the legacies of various strands of a vast field of gender studies, such as queer studies, men’s studies, feminism, postfeminism, or posthumanist studies, through multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary lens, i.e. through their intersection with a wide range of research areas within linguistics, literature, cultural and translation studies, and a variety of theoretical and critical approaches, such as modernism, postmodernism, post-postmodernism, performatism, poststructuralism, postcolonialism, or transnationalism. Finally, marking the centennial anniversary of the US Nineteenth Amendment obliges us to look back and re-evaluate progress and backlash in all our gender policies by reconsidering implications of cultural representations of gender, from women’s rights to LGBT rights to complex research into the category of the “posthumanˮ and AI/human interaction that has ushered us into the digital age.

It is these and related topics that we intend to examine as closely as possible at this year’s conference and we invite researchers and scholars working in the broad area of Anglophone studies to submit abstracts for oral presentations based on the (non-exhaustive) list of areas of interest below:
- Phonetics/ Phonology/ Morphology/ Syntax

- Teaching English as a Foreign/ Second Language/ Language Acquisition
- Translation Studies
- Interpretation Studies
- Literary Theory/ Literary Criticism/ Literary History
