Brno, Czech Republic
5 – 7 February 2015

Texts and other sites of meaning – verbal, visual, multimodal – are the common ground in the various disciplines of anglophone studies. There are multiple agents involved in the production of meaning: authors/speakers, recipients/audiences, and the scholar. Each of these actors is involved in the process of creating, shaping, and signifying in their own, specific manner. This conference seeks to explore the manifestations of these processes in diverse contexts and from various perspectives.

We welcome proposals for twenty-minute presentations in the fields of literature, linguistics, cultural studies, translation studies, and ELT methodology. Abstracts of between 150 and 250 words should be submitted via a web form on the conference website by 30 July 2014.

Acceptance notifications will be sent out by 1 September 2014. For more information, email us at
