Reviewing viewpoint

University of Namur, Faculty of Arts, 19-20 September 2019

Following on from previous editions held in Leiden (November 2016) and Nijmegen (April 2018), the University of Namur is pleased to host a third edition in this informal series of brainstorming workshops devoted to viewpoint. 

The format of these workshops is deliberately open-ended, and for this third edition too we intend to avoid the rhythm of short presentations with shorter discussion time in quick succession, requiring constant clock-checking and policing. Instead, there will be four blocks of longish (c. three hour) sessions of mixed presentation/discussion time, during which workshop participants are encouraged to actively engage (and interrupt), bringing up their own ideas, hot takes, examples, questions, etc..

Workshop sponsors

The workshop organizers gratefully acknowledge the generous financial support granted by the FNRS research foundation, the UNamur research institute NALTT, the UNamur Research Council (FSR-Ecole doctorale) and the Poetics and Linguistics Association.
