CFP: "The Letter of the Law": Law Matters in Language and Literature

8th International Conference of the Hellenic Association for the Study of English, University of Athens, Greece, May 5-8, 2011.

"The conference is interested in exploring literature as a juridically-defined commodity and reassessing the impact of law on literary history, as the emergence of the modern concept of literature was determined by copyright laws and censorship. We are also interested in the pragmatics of rhetoric and legal discourse, as well as in new research in the field of forensic linguistics, manifested in both written (e.g., judgements used in juridical settings, legislation, contracts) and spoken forms of discourse (e.g., lawyer client consultation, counsel-witness examination, interview techniques)."

Submission deadline for proposals: October 3, 2010.
