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.

Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.
