An International Conference on British Narratives of Exploration
22 - 23 March 2007
Ecole Normale Superieure Lettres et Sciences Humaines
An international conference on British narratives of exploration will be
held at the ENS in March 2007. Participants will be expected to deal
primarily with the pragmatic aspects of first encounters: how self and other
are brought to recontextualize their respective practices in the specific
field of action; particular attention should also be paid to the textual
dimension of the account‹how self and other are produced through a specific
rhetoric, narrative devices, metaphors, etc. The language of the conference
will be English.
Please send a 300 word abstract through the post to Prof. F. Regard,
