Breaking the Boundaries: In between Texts, Cultures and Conventions

Organized and hosted by

The Department of English and American Studies, Masaryk University, Brno and the Czech Association for the Study of English are pleased 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 31 August 2019. Please send any queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
