Subject:    CFP: New Approaches to Shakespeare's Language and Style

The European Society for the Study of English 10 Conference -- Turin, 
Italy, 24-28 August 2010
Call for Papers: New Approaches to Shakespeare's Language and Style

We invite papers for seminar 12 on Shakespeare's language and style at 
the tenth international conference of ESSE (The European Society for the 
Study of English):

Shakespeare had a lifelong interest in exploiting the mechanics of 
language, as is evidenced by the adroit linguistic manipulations 
displayed in his works, and his own uses of language still intrigue and 
baffle us today. The current revived interest in his language and style 
and new tools of investigation allow us to probe further into his 
production and offer innovative insights bridging the gap between 
linguists and literary scholars. This seminar will take a particular 
interest in such cutting-edge approaches as corpus stylistics and 
cognitive stylistics, but also aims at showing that there can be new 
life in more traditional approaches (rhetoric, poetics, pragmatics, etc.).

Please send a 200-word abstract of the proposed paper directly to both 
convenors of the seminar before 31 January 2010:
