Breaking the Boundaries:

In Between Texts, Cultures and Conventions    

11th Brno International Conference of English, American and Canadian Studies

Organized and hosted by:

The Czech Association for the Study of English (CZASE) and

Department of English and American Studies, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic

12 – 14 February 2020

The Department of English and American Studies, Masaryk University, Brno and the Czech Association for the Study of English are proud to announce the 11th Brno International Conference of English, American and Canadian Studies.

This year’s conference theme reflects some of the key concerns of all scholars in English studies: the focus on text analysis, the consideration of cultural and other contexts, and the operation of textual, social and generic conventions in which our communicative practices are embedded, regardless of whether one deals with authentic texts, literary creations, or translated works. The conference seeks to break down some of the existing boundaries between the disciplines, not only bringing scholars together but also investigating the potential for their interdisciplinary cooperation.

Following the tradition established at the previous Brno conferences, we invite proposals for individual papers (20 min + 5 min discussion) and posters in the fields of literature, linguistics, cultural studies, translation studies, and ELT methodology. Abstracts of papers and posters (200-250 words) should be submitted online at the conference website by 30 September 2019. Please send any queries to brno2020@phil.muni.cz.
