[UPDATE] Bakhtin For Tomorrow! Contemporary Poetry & Pragmatics: A Discussion Seminar

University of British Columbia

Bakhtin For Tomorrow! Contemporary Poetry & Pragmatics: A Discussion Seminar

We seek papers for a seminar aimed at discussing intersections between contemporary / postmodern poetry and recent findings in pragmatic linguistics. Our particular interest is in empirical (especially corpus-based) speech research. However, we invite a broad range of submissions theoretically grounded in Bakhtin dialogism, pragmatics, or the sociolinguistic direction Lecercle outlines in A Marxist Philosophy of Language. We think aspects of current pragmatics (sometimes inadvertently) vindicate, revise and extend Bakhtinian dialogism, and in this seminar wish to consider how contemporary poetry and linguistics embody and further Bakhtin's legacy.
