CALL FOR PAPERS for
THE 2nd EARLY STAGES: STUDENT SYMPOSIUM ON LITERARY AND CULTURAL STUDIES
to be held on June 16, 2016

 

Cultural, social, economic and philosophical issues are reflected in various “texts” of English-speaking countries. While examining these issues, students will have an opportunity to demonstrate that research methods used in different academic disciplines (such as cultural anthropology, food studies, social sciences, philosophy, art, music, etc) could benefit one other. Therefore, one of the central goals of the symposium is to provide students with a forum for an exchange of ideas and thoughts concerning the texts of English-speaking countries. The symposium aims to develop new analytical approaches to literary and cultural studies with attention to the issues relevant to students’ own research areas. Thus, students whose academic interests intersect with literary and cultural studies are encouraged to consider participating in the symposium.

 

The 2nd Early Stages symposium is in its organizational stage, however the thematic focus is being shaped by the already submitted proposals, which for instance include the semiotics of food in various texts of American culture. Students are cordially invited to submit conference papers (approx. 20-minute presentations) on the texts of American, English and Canadian cultures. Contributions should be in English.

 

Please send a short abstract (a few sentences) stating your name and email address by June 6, 2016 to the following address: ulanief@kul.pl 

All queries should also be sent to the above address.
