14 - 15 April 2017, Logic and Literary Form, Berkeley CA, U.S.A.

Date: 14 - 15 April 2017
Location: Berkeley CA, U.S.A.

This conference promises to bridge the gap between literary formalism and formal logic by investigating conceptual and historical links between them in a range of subfields and periods. We will identify discrete affinities and analogical resonances among different areas of logic and literature. We will also consider what the cross-fertilization of ideas and practices has meant for logical and literary fields in the past, and might mean for these disciplines in the present.

We will convene amid an unprecedented wave of scholarship addressing historical and theoretical commonalities in literature and logic. Our conference undertakes an interdisciplinary effort to extend and enrich this current surge in research connecting formal logic and literary formalism.


The program committee cordially invites all researches to submit their papers for presentation. We invite papers on the historical and theoretical dimensions of form and formalism in relation to literature and logic, as well as any other topics related to literary formalism or formal logic.
