CALL FOR PAPERS

The Department of English and American Studies

at the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, University of Pardubice,
is pleased to announce its
 
13th International Cultural Studies Conference
&
2nd International Conference on Linguistics and Language Teaching and Learning
 
 

Pardubice, 13-14 October 2016

 
“[T]he autonomy of many academic disciplines has given way, to a greater or lesser extent. It seems an era of interdisciplinarity.‘Theory’ is born out of this moment.”   - Vincent B. Leitch
 

Leitch describes a shift from a parochial mindset, which autocratically assumes a rigid separation among impermeable fields of study, towards work characterized by an “unstable fusion” of perspectives and methods. He links this movement with the displacement of the “modernist formalism dominant from the 1930s to the 1960s in the US” towards the production of artifacts characterized by “open-ended postmodern assemblage.” (2005)

Although papers which employ an interdisciplinary approach are encouraged, any proposals dealing with the literature or other cultural artifacts of Anglophone nations or communities as well as with English linguistics or language teaching and learning are invited. Papers should be 20 minutes in length. Proposals along with abstracts of no more than 250 words can be submitted online by 15 June 2016. Further details and information will be posted on this webpage as it becomes available.

The conference has its traditional student section open to participants from Czech and foreign universities. Their participation is free of charge.
