>Subject: CFP: State of Stylistics (Finland) (5/31/06; PALA, 7/26/06-7/29/06)
>PALA 2006 Joensuu Finland Call for papers
>There has been much debate in recent years within the broad
>domain of stylistics about how to define this field of
>investigation. This same debate most recently arose at our last
>gathering in Huddersfield (July 2005). How has stylistics
>evolved since the early 1970s? How do we define "stylistics"
>today? What are its aims? How do we go about meeting these
>aims? Can we realistically reach a consensus? How viable is
>stylistics in the 21st century? What could be its main
>contributions? To what extent is stylistics an interdisciplinary
>venture? The purpose of this conference is to reflect upon
>these broad questions: to consider what state the state of
>stylistics is in.
>We invite you to submit papers that reflect upon the wide
>range of methodologies and outlooks that have evolved within
>this field during the latter half of the 20th century whilst
>considering how they reflect upon the core purpose of stylistic
>investigation and indeed just what this core might be. It would
>also be interesting to discuss what impact stylistics might have
>in future years to come.
>Abstracts for papers should be 300-500 words in length, and
>must include a title, the author's name, institutional affiliation,
>mailing address, email address and any special equipment
>needed (overhead projectors and computational projection will
>be available in all rooms).
>Abstracts for panel discussions and workshops, 300-500
>words in length including the same basic informaton as a paper
>abstract, are also strongly encouraged. It may be possible to
>organise these as pre-conference options, if desired. For
>instance, we will be offering a 1 day workshop "Corpus
>Approaches to the Language of Literature" on Tuesday 25th
>July, and we have 3 special interest group panels during the
>conference covering Literature and Film, Narrative Theory,
>and Textual Intrepretation.
>Papers will be scheduled in strictly enforced 30 minute blocks.
>Each paper should be 20 minutes long, thus reserving 10
>minutes for questions, discussion, and movement from one
>room to another. Panel discussions can be reserved for either
>90 or 120 minutes.
>NOTE: The final deadline for submission of abstracts has
>been extended to May 31st, 2006. Please send these to
