> American Comparative Literature Association Conference 2006
> (Princeton University, March 23-26)
> Seminar-panel
> Language, Ideology, and the Human
> Organizers and chairs: Dusan Radunovic, University of Sheffield, and Sanja 
> Bahun, Rutgers University
> Both, matter and essence, the eternal memory of the humankind and the 
> ephemeral glitter of the mind, the phenomenon of language has never ceased 
> to captivate the imagination of the Western civilization. In a wide span 
> from the controversy of its ontological status («words and things») to the 
> paradoxes of the language-thought correlation and the ideological (mis)use 
> of language, the multiple ways in which language structures the human have 
> provoked systematic and oft-times radical theoretical articulations. We 
> invite proposals that deal with, but are not limited to, the following set 
> of questions:
> - philosophy of language: traditional and modern
> - philosophy as language: the twentieth century
> - language and the cognitive forms
> - the «langue» and its enemies
> - the heteroglotic self and the linguistic liberation of the human
> - the Bourdieuan analysis: language and symbolic power structures
> - language of revolution and revolution in language
> - meta-languages and ideology: literature, film, media, etc.
> The paper proposals (maximum 250 words) should be submitted through the ACLA 
> web-site: http://webscript.princeton.edu/~acla06/site/?page_id=4. All 
> inquiries may be directed to Dusan Radunovic, (D.Radunovic at sheffield.ac.uk).
