The International Journal of Literary Linguistics (IJLL) is an open-access, peer-review journal published by Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Germany) that is dedicated to the publication of original research at the interface of literary studies and linguistics. The journal provides an innovative forum for articles participating in the recent reshaping of the field of literary linguistics under the influence of pragmatics, functional linguistics and cognitive studies. It aims at contributing to a new, dialogic understanding of literary production and reception. The journal invites contributions from scholars working on different languages and literatures.
Connecting the Dots in a Glocalized World 2016 will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in the four main disciplines of language, linguistics, literature and translation. As the title for the conference suggests, the aim is to focus on the relationship between global themes and local practices, highlighting the under-examined interactions that occur as globalization takes on negotiated forms in different contexts. With an emphasis on interdisciplinary studies and methodologies, the conference will centralize both research that theorizes the links between the local and the global and research that shows, through practical evidence, how local and global interact.

CFP: Temporal Discombobulations: Time and the Experience of the Gothic
Gothic Temporalities Group in conjunction with the University of Surrey
22-24 August 2016 University of Surrey United Kingdom
Our experience of the Gothic is one founded in time. Whether it is of a past that will not or cannot die, multiple presents that can never resolved, or infinite futures that can never be realised it speaks of a temporal excess that refuses to be contained.
