Meeting Description:

Situated in the socio-discoursal and socio-cultural approaches to LSP studies
(Belcher 2004), this international conference engages with the dual objective
of pursuing enquiry related to studies in FASP (fiction à substrat
professionnel), a genre of fiction identified and codified by Michel Petit
(1999) and Shaeda Isani (2004), on the one hand and, on the other, exploring
new avenues of reflection regarding other narrative forms, both fictional and
non-fictional of potential interest to ESP studies. The point of departure
resides in the notion of ''narrative'' as presented by Roland Barthes:
There are countless forms of narrative in the world. First of all, there is a
prodigious variety of genres, each of which branches out into a variety of
media, as if all substances could be relied upon to accommodate man’s stories.
Among the vehicles of narrative are articulated language, whether oral or
written, pictures, still or moving, gestures, and an ordered mixture of all
those substances; narrative is present in myth, legend, fables, tales, short
stories, epics, history, tragedy, drame (suspense drama), comedy, pantomime,
paintings […], stained-glass windows, movies, local news, conversation. (1975:
237. Translation Lionel Duisit)
In this wide-ranging acceptance of what narrative is, we welcome proposals
both on fictional narrative, FASP novels, plays, films, TV series, graphic
novels, video games, etc., and non-fictional narrative, (auto)biographies,
ethnographies, scenarios, storylines, blogs, interviews, and other forms of
''creative non-fiction'', relevant to the discipline of languages and cultures
for specialised purposes.

2nd Call for Papers:

The conference proposes three main thematic axes:

A theoretical perspective in which papers are invited to explore the generic
specificity of different narrative forms in relation to specialized language,
discourse and culture.

In the framework of the socio-cultural and ethnographic approach, proposals
are invited with regard to what may be qualified as ''professional life
narratives'' in the sense borrowed from Danvers for whom ''it is not a
question of talking about one’s job but of engaging professional identity
through the experience of professional life'' (2009: 472. Our translation). In
this respect, we are particularly interested in research showing relevance
between (auto)biographies, ethnographies, documentaries, blogs, etc., as
related to LSP studies.

In a teaching/learning perspective, we invite proposals on critical analyses
regarding fictional and non-fictional narratives and their potential as
pedagogic supports with regard to the different sub-domains of LSP
(translation studies, ICT, linguistics, corpus studies or specialised
cultures, etc.).

Proposals relating to other angles of approach connected to the narrative/LSP
axes are also welcome.

Abstract Length: 250-300 words

Abstract Format: Abstracts should include 10 bibliographical references.

Proposals in French or in English are to be sent before 30 September 2016 to
both of the following email addresses:

shaeda.isani at univ-grenoble-alpes.fr
severine.wozniak at univ-grenoble-alpes.fr

Authors will receive official notification of acceptance by 30 October 2016.

A selection of papers will be published in #18 of the online journal ILCEA
(March 2018).
