Meeting Description: PALA LAND SIG workshop: The stylistics of landscape, place and environment

A workshop of the PALA LAND Special Interest Group ( on the stylistics of landscape, place and environment will be led by Ernestine Lahey (University College Roosevelt), Daniela Francesca Virdis (University of Cagliari) and Elisabetta Zurru (University of Genoa).

The first PALA LAND SIG was held at the PALA 2014 conference in Maribor. Following that successful event, participants are invited for a second workshop.

Its primary aim will be to survey current stylistic approaches to concepts of landscape, place and environment (and related concepts such as space, setting, cityscape, etc.). Secondary aims include developing stylistic practice in “place-based” stylistics (e.g. ecostylistics/ecopoetics, the stylistics of tourism, etc.) and facilitating an exchange of ideas between scholars with similar interests, with a view to future collaborative research efforts and publications.
