Re: FW: XII International Bakhtin Conference, 2nd Circular




I guess everybody has noticed the lack of Eugene on xmca recently. Am I the only one who sees it as a major loss? I certainly miss the stimulation. Has he had problems with the controllers?

The XII International Bakhtin Conference

 

Jyväskylä, July 18-22, 2005

 

Second Circular

 

You are cordially invited to participate in the XII International Bakhtin Conference which will take place July 18-22, 2005 in Jyväskylä, Finland. The conference will be hosted by Department of Languages and Centre for Applied Language Studies, University of Jyväskylä.

 

THEMES

 

During last two or three decades the ideas discussed by Mikhail Bakhtin and the so-called Bakhtin Circle have been interpreted, appropriated and applied extensively; despite this, they still continue providing new insights into a variety of disciplines. At the same time, starting from the mid-1990s, the re-evaluation of the legacy of the Bakhtin Circle and its place in the Humanities has become a central issue in contemporary Bakhtin Studies. The publication of Bakhtinâ??s Collected Works and recent research into the possible intellectual sources of the members of the Circle have made inevitable the re-evaluation of Bakhtinâ??s ideas and the significance of the contributions by the other members of the Circle. These two projects have helped us understand the formation of the ideas of the Bakhtin Circle and to appreciate their â??originality in contextâ??.

 

The main objective of the XII International Bakhtin Conference is to offer a forum for scholarly discussions and debates concerning exegesis, interpretation and application of the ideas of Mikhail Bakhtin and other members of the Bakhtin Circle. We encourage presentations on a wide range of topics dealing with different aspects of the intellectual legacy of the Bakhtin Circle.
