Meeting Description:

A Young Researchers Conference on 'British and American TV Series'
25 February 2012

We have the pleasure to invite M.A. and PhD students interested in linguistics, culture studies, media studies, and sociology to participate in the conference organized by the 'Texts & Codes' student society at the Institute of English Studies, University of Lodz, Poland. Though our society is mainly linguistically/semiotically oriented, we fully appreciate the importance of interdisciplinary research, which is particularly relevant in the case of the broad theme of our conference.

Depending on the number of prospective participants, the conference may be extended to two days (25-26 February 2012).

There is no conference fee.

The venue for the conference will be the Institute of English Studies in Lodz, al. Kosciuszki 65. We can advise you on finding accommodation.

- The linguistic characteristics of the particular series

Abstracts of 200-300 words should be sent to textscodesgmail.com by 4 February 2012 at the latest.
