Anglophonia is the seventh International Anglophone Conference for Young Scholars organized by the English Student Club X.a. The conference will take place from 16th to 18th May 2024 at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, Croatia.
The theme of the conference will be ANGLOPHONE STUDIES with a focus on topics such as meaning, ambiguity, decoding, interpretation, subjectivity, intentionality, message. The inspiration for this year’s theme was drawn from Jorge Louis Borges’ short story The Garden of Forking Paths, and we borrowed the imagery in the title to evoke ideas of complexity, investigation and choice. Whether we are engaging in analyses of literary texts or examinations of meaning from a linguistic standpoint, the above-mentioned concepts rarely get left out, and we invite you to join us in expanding on them at this year’s conference. The topic is broad, so just be creative! The areas covered include, but are not limited to:
- Anglophone literature, as well as other art forms
- Anglophone cultures
- Translation studies
