    International Conference
    23-25 September 2019, Katowice (Poland)
    Castaways. Discourses of Mastery and Alienation


    To celebrate the tercentenary of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, we invite propositions for cultural and literary reconsiderations of the themes set forth by the novel which, in a number of ways, both influenced and distorted Western perspectives on the issues of colonization, cultural encounters, environment, empowerment, and lack thereof. More specifically, we propose a rethinking of the theme of the castaway and of, related to it, ideas of alienation and mastery. Defoe’s novel may be a starting point for such considerations, but we also invite proposals that seek to explore the conference’s issues across time from a wide array of perspectives: literary, cultural, sociological and historical. Likewise, the conference opens its space to the approaches `ranging from those exploring cultural and literary perspectives of the past as well as those exploring the issues in contemporary texts and contexts. These may include:

  • Humor Research Project Conference
    Humor Research Project Conference

    NEOlinguists – the PhD candidate association is pleased to announce that the Humor Research Project conference will be held on April 4-5, 2019 in Sosnowiec under the patronage of the Institute of English, the Institute of English Cultures and Literatures, and the Institute of Romance Languages and Translation Studies of the University of Silesia.

    The purpose of the conference is to create a forum for discussions on the perception of humour through various paradigms. We hope that Humor Research Project will become a chance to explore humour in its interdisciplinarity and universality, as well as will make it possible to encourage debate on the place of humour in language, culture, and academic research. Thus, we would like to invite researchers who are interested in the topic to attend this event devoted to language and humor, which will cover both linguistic and (cross-)cultural perspectives, as well as literary and translation studies so as to provide important insights into language for humorous purposes.
