We welcome proposals for 20 minute papers, pertaining to any historical 
period and based on any methodological approach covering, but not limited 
to, the following sub-themes and topics: 
- Sociolinguistic movement (languages in contact, bi/multilingualism, 
language and identity) 
- Phonological/phonetic variation (changes in sound, (re)syllabification, 
stress, intonation) 
- Morpho-syntactic movement (motivation, barriers, distributive morphology, 
the left periphery) 
- Semantic adaptations (neologisms, shifts in meaning, problematic 
translations) 
- Sociohistorical movements (travel narratives, migrant literature, 
political exile, diaspora, globalization) 
- Cultural translations (literary, artistic, political, socio-cultural 
movements) 
- Literary transfers (genre transfer, theoretical adaptation, translation, 
imitation, parody, minor genres) 
- Self questionings (otherness, nostalgia, pilgrimages, autobiography, 
splitting of the Self ) 
- Literary theories and methods (psychoanalytical criticism, 
sociocriticism, sociology of literature, Marxism) 

Please send your anonymous abstracts in English or French (250 word 
maximum), in either plain text, Word, PDF or RTF format. On a separate 
sheet, indicate your name and contact information, as well as the title of
