In 1975, Mircea Eliade constates in his book Sacred and Profane: „Desacralization is significant for the whole experience of non-religious man of the modern society and re-discovery of existential extents of a religious man from archaic societies represents for him still a bigger difficulty for the same reason,“ (Eliade, 2006, p.14). He also remarks: „modern non-religious man receives his new existential situation: he recognizes only himself as a subject and an agent of history and refuses any references to transcendence. Sanctity is an obstacle par excellence for his freedom,“ (Ibid, p.134).

As our daily lives have grown more and more dominated by technology and by a corresponding fascination with the “new,” there’s been a counter movement interested in reexamining the ways of “the past.”  Whether it is handmade books, craft-made pickles, vintage automobiles, or handlebar mustaches, indeed the cliché often seems true now: what’s old is new again.

The meanings of dialects in British poetry – from late 19th century to early 21st century.

 

One-day conference.

May 19th, 2017, Lille 3 University.

 

Keynote speakers:

Tom Burton (University of Adelaide, Australia)

Jane Hodson (University of Sheffield, UK)

 

 

 

Despite the fact that, quite recently, and ironically, The Guardian headline read “Regional dialects are Dying Out – It’s Enough to get you Blarting” (May, 30th 2016), dialects have always been – and continue to be - present in poetry.
