Full Title: PALA LAND-SIG Workshop: The Stylistics of Landscape, Space and Place 
Short Title: PALA LAND-SIG 

Date: 16-Jul-2014 - 20-Jul-2014
Location: Maribor, Slovenia 
Contact Person: Daniela Francesca Virdis
Meeting Email: dfvirdis at unica.it
Web Site: http://projects.ff.uni-mb.si/pala2014/programme/ 

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Ling & Literature; Pragmatics 

Call Deadline: 20-Jan-2014 

Meeting Description:

The primary aim of this first workshop will be to survey current stylistic
approaches to concepts of landscape, place and space (and related concepts
such as environment, setting, cityscape, etc.). Secondary aims include
developing stylistic practice in “place-based” stylistics (e.g.
ecostylistics/ecopoetics, the stylistics of tourism, etc.) and facilitating an
exchange of ideas between scholars with similar interests, with a view to
future collaborative research efforts.

Call for Papers:

Participants are invited for the first PALA workshop of the group “LAND-SIG”, a special interest group on the stylistics of landscape, space and place (http://www.pala.ac.uk/resources/sigs/LAND-SIG/).

Papers are invited on:

- Eco-stylistics/eco-poetics
- Travel writing
- Discourses of tourism
- Figurative/metaphorical aspects of landscape and setting
- Strategies in landscape description
- Landscape, place and belonging (e.g. as in post-colonial literatures)
- The landscapes/spaces/places of science and speculative fiction
- Space, place, landscape in drama and performance
- Representations of specific places (some examples from past PALA conferences include Sardinia, Interlaken, Birmingham, the Arctic)
- The style of specific writers in their representations of landscapes, spaces and places
- The landscapes/spaces/places of specific genres
- Landscape/space/place description in specific works

This list is suggestive rather than exhaustive and other concerns and approaches which fit into the broad aims of the SIG would be most welcome.

While papers from non-PALA members are welcome, in keeping with the aims of the SIG, all papers should fit within the discipline of stylistics (i.e. there must be some textual analysis and/or engagement with stylistic theory).

Please send an abstract of between 150 to 250 words to BOTH Ernestine Lahey (e.lahey at ucr.nl) and Daniela Francesca Virdis (dfvirdis at unica.it). The deadline for the SIG workshop abstracts is 20 January 2014.

Please see http://projects.ff.uni-mb.si/pala2014/ for all information on the PALA 2014 Conference, to be held from 16 to 20 July 2014 at the University of Maribor, Slovenia.
