|AULLA 2016 Conference on "Love and the Word"|
| 8.9.2015 | Updated: 26.4.2016
NB. The deadline for submitting proposals has been extended till 1 July 2016
The Australian Universities Languages and Literature Association (AULLA) is organising a conference on the theme "Love and the Word" in 2016.
The conference will be hosted by Victoria University and will be held in Melbourne, Australia.
On the AULLA website, it reads:
"The conference theme draws on AULLA’s origins as an association of scholars working in fields of philology. Thus we examine both philos (love) and logos (word). How does affection affect words? What do people mean by ‘love’ and its counterparts in the world’s languages? Or perhaps: how does it ‘do’ those meanings?
We encourage papers with a focus on engaged studies and discussions of teaching practice and of critical/exegetical responses to creative practice. Papers that respond to ‘love and the word’ in the fields of languages, the literary study of other languages, and philosophical approaches to cultural expression are expressly welcome. We also expressly welcome interdisciplinary angles on the theme, such as Cultural Studies, Indigenous Studies, Postcolonial Studies, and comparative approaches."
