Event Details: Writing in Non-Standard English

Description: The workshop “Writing in Non-Standard English” will be held within the 12th ESSE conference in Košice, Slovakia.

Convenors:

Linda Pillière Aix Marseille Université, France.
Isabelle Roblin Université du Littoral Côte d'Opale, France.
Jane Hodson, University of Sheffield United Kingdom

In recent years, the once firmly held opinion that English is a homogeneous language has been called into question by linguists and literary scholars alike. This seminar will bring together researchers in literature, stylistics and linguistics to share and compare methodologies for analyzing the representation of non-standard English in literature from the nineteenth century to the present day. Topics will include the role of non-standard English in literary texts, reader-response to non-standard English in literary texts, the ideological implications of representing non-standard English, the diverse literary and linguistic strategies used by writers to represent non-standard varieties, and the relevance of linguistic verisimilitude when analyzing literary dialects.

Type: Conferences & Seminars

Location: Kosice, Slovakia

Date & Time: From 8/29/2014 0:00 AM To 9/2/2014 0:00 AM
