Konference: 10th Brno International Conference of English, American and Canadian Studies–Creating, Shaping, Signifying (5.–7. 2. 2015)

Texts and other sites of meaning – verbal, visual, multimodal – are the common ground in the various disciplines of Anglophone studies. There are multiple agents involved in the production of meaning: authors/speakers, recipients/audiences, and the scholar. Each of these actors is involved in the process of creating, shaping, and signifying in their own, specific manner. This conference seeks to explore the manifestations of these processes in diverse contexts and from various perspectives.
