Our main purpose is to explore literary fiction texts through the combination of several disciplines and practices, namely literary studies, stylistics and linguistics, empirical aesthetics and oral performance. Bringing together these different approaches seems necessary to fully grasp and experience the powerful effects a literary piece of text is prone to produce in readers.
The conference has been conceived as a convivial event, aiming to foster interaction between attendees. We intend to favour quality over quantity in terms of scientific output, and will therefore avoid parallel sessions if possible.
Lunches, as well as an opening reception, will be provided.
The full programme will be made available here.
