CALL. 15/02/2020: Conversation and Dialogue in Latin (21st ICLL 2021) -Santiago de Compostela (Spain)







The participants of the workshop will discuss and share thoughts and ideas on the representation of talk-in-interaction in Latin texts: in comedy and tragedy, in philosophical and literary dialogues, and in isolated passages of other literary genres, such as epic poetry, historiography, satire and novel. We welcome proposals for contributions based on Conversation Analysis or other interaction-focused approaches and pragmatic frameworks.
