Paisii Readings 2017 – Call for Papers


Ownness and Foreignness, or Where the Mind Hovers: Dialogues in Literature, Language, and Culture

A Conference of the Department of English & American Studies at Paisii Hilendarski University of Plovdiv

(As Part of the Annual Paisievi Dni at Paisii Hilendarski University of Plovdiv, Venue: Paisii Hilendarski University of Plovdiv, Plovdiv, 9 – 10 November 2017)

This international conference promises to turn into an intriguing crossroads of ideas – engendered and exchanged in interdisciplinary discussion amid a vast range of scholars from Bulgaria and abroad. For a number of years The Department of English & American Studies at Paisii Hilendarski University of Plovdiv has been a regular contributor to this atmosphere of cultural exchange and excellence in academic achievement by organizing its own section. We will therefore welcome proposals in the following areas – as points of orientation, rather than rigorous restriction:

  •      Translation studies – linguistic & literary aspects
  •      Fantastic leaps – borderline issues in linguistics
  •      Literary transgressions – time, space and imagination
  •      Cross-cultural exchange – dialogues between British & American literature
  •      Challenges & innovations in teaching English – the school & the academic context
  •     Concealed provinces of the mind, or the uneasy trinity: author, reader and literary work in British and American literature
  •      Computational linguistics – the pulsations of an expanding field
  •      Hunting for the Past – memory as a cultural variable in English & American studies
  •      Postcolonial journeys – Englishness & Otherness

Deadline for sending proposals: 20 July 2017
