Geoffrey Leech and Mick Short honorary guests at Style in Fiction Today Conference

Date: 22 September 2011

Emeritus Professor Geoffrey Leech and Professor Mick Short were invited as honorary guests to the Université Lyon 3, France on 22-23 September 2011, to give keynote addresses at a conference on Style in Fiction Today.

The conference was a joint event of the Poetics and Linguistics Association (PALA) and the Société de Stylistique Anglaise (SSA) to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the publication of Leech and Short's Style in Fiction in 1981. Five years ago, Style in Fiction won the Silver Jubilee prize awarded by PALA for the most influential stylistics book written since the association's founding in 1980. A new edition of the book was published by Pearson/Longman in 2006.
