Subject:	Shakespeare Seminar, Denmark

Dear listmembers,

We now have the final programme details for seminar 20: Shakespeare and 
Discourse Stylistics, which will be held at the ESSE 9 conference - 
Aarhus, Denmark, 22-26 August 2008:

"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 semantics, pragmatics, and semiotics."

Our seminar will take place on Saturday 23 August 2008, 14:00-16:00 
(session 1) and on Sunday 24 August, 9:00-11:00 (session 2):
