Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the International Postgraduate Linguistic Conference
in Text Studies "What's in a Text?". It will be held at the University of Maria
Curie-Słodowska in Lublin between 9 and 11 Sep 2010. The event will be organized
by the English Department of Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin, Poland.

Call for Papers

Extended Deadline: March 21

The main focus of the conference is a broadly understood notion of "text". The
meeting is intended to be a forum for an exchange of ideas between doctoral
students of various linguistic fields.

We invite presentations of research from various fields of linguistics relevant
for broadly understood inquiry into the nature of text(s). "Text" is understood
here in a broad sense, ranging from belles lettres, via journalism, to everyday
spoken discourse or electronic corpora. Presentations should deal with text(s)
from the linguistic viewpoint. Specific areas of interest include but are not
limited to:

cognitive poetics
discourse analysis
the study of corpora and electronic texts
linguistic problems of narration and "author presence"
semantics and pragmatics of texts
iconicity in text
the linguistics of translation

In other words, we would like to consider the following questions:

What kind(s) of texts do we study?
Why do we study them? What are we looking for?
What do and don't we find?
What do we do with whatever we do find?
What does it tell us about language, its speakers or the human mind?
Generally, what is (a) text for me as a linguist and/or translator?

Abstracts of maximum 300 words (including the references) should be submitted by
March 21, 2010 to the following e-mail address: iplc2010umcs.pl. Send your
abstract as a doc, odt or an rtf file. Do NOT reveal your name or affiliation in
the abstract; instead, provide full name and affiliation (Ph.D. programme) in
the body of the e-mail. The presentations will last 20 minutes each, plus 10
minutes for discussion. Note that we can ONLY accept submissions from students
who are enrolled in a Ph.D. programme or are affiliated with a university and
engaged in a research towards a Ph.D.

We are planning a publication of selected presentations with an international
