Subject:	Call for papers: Esse-9 Conference, Seminar 20: Shakespeare and 
Discourse Stylistics

ESSE 9 conference - Aarhus, Denmark, 22-26 August 2008: Seminar 20:
Shakespeare and Discourse Stylistics.

The next ESSE conference will be held at the University of Aarhus, 
Denmark, from 22 to 26 August 2008. We invite papers for seminar 20 on 
'Shakespeare and Discourse Stylistics'

Panel Abstract:
 From copia to stylistic reticence, Shakespeare's playtexts map out the 
extreme limits and impasse of verbal communication. The present seminar 
aims at assessing and highlighting the discourse strategies and 
structures at stake in conversational exchange and interaction in the 
very process of capturing the world of human understanding and 
relationships. Such a process involves the difficulty, sometimes the 
impossibility, and the exhilaration of mediating that world through 
language. Shakespeare's playtexts should be envisaged as being rooted in 
a cultural and rhetorical context in which meaning (and the difficulties 
of conveying meaning) is a collaborative construction, involving author, 
text, culture, and reader. Papers are welcome on the range of 
Shakespeare's negotiations with the problematics of the production of 
meaning. Areas of exploration include textual stylistics, semantics, 
pragmatics, and semiotics.
