Analytic Philosophy and the Novel
41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010
Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure
This panel participates in a growing fascination with the connections between the narrative conventions of the novel and the field of analytic philosophy. Subjects may include (but are not limited to) theories of reference, speech acts, intentionality, metaphor, translation, demonstratives, propositional attitudes, pragmatics, meaning and use. All novel genres, periods, and languages are welcome, as are relevant implications for the study of objects, plots, characters, and fictionality.
