12th International Cultural Studies Conference
1st International Conference on Linguistics and Teaching/Learning English
Pardubice Castle, 20 - 21 October, 2014
Natural frameworks identify occurrences seen as undirected, unoriented, unanimated, unguided, “purely physical.” […] Social frameworks, on the other hand, provide background understanding for events that incorporate the will, aim, and controlling effort of an intelligence, a live agency, the chief one being the human being. Such an agency is anything but implacable; it can be coaxed, flattered, affronted, and threatened. What it does can be described as “guided doings.”
Erving Goffman, Frame Analysis: An Essay on the Organization of Experience (1974)
In what ways do frames operate in language, literature, culture, in education? How does the act of framing affect essentiality, ambiguity, non/canonicity, non/centrality, hybridity or transgression within and between genres, texts and cultural phenomena? Although papers addressing these questions are encouraged, any proposals dealing with the literature or other cultural artifacts of Anglophone nations or communities as well as with English linguistics and teaching/learning English are invited.
Cultural studies conference papers may be extended into articles and submitted to the American and British Studies Annual (ABSA), indexed in SCOPUS since 2012.
