ANALYTIC PHILOSOPHY AND THE NOVEL

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010

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.
