Evidentiality is the linguistic expression of whether and how a speaker/writer has access to evidence for or against the truth of a proposition, and it is usually manifested in the form of sensory evidentiality [...], hearsay evidentiality&nbsp;[...], or inferential evidentiality [...]. The aims of this thesis are to investigate whether there are quantitative differences between women and men in how often they mark evidentiality, and to analyze the functions of evidentiality in interaction in order to formulate an explanation of any gender differences.&quot;</p> <p>The thesis will be publicly defended on 18 April 2020.</p> Thu, 26 Mar 2020 09:55:00 GMT https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=861918&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 2020-03-26T09:55:00Z Study Counsellor's office hours https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=847394&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 Wed, 12 Feb 2020 13:15:00 GMT https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=847394&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 2020-02-12T13:15:00Z New Book - Merja Kytö and Claudia Claridge (eds).

Here Robert Appelbaum explores the nature of mimesis, aggression, the affects of antagonism and victimization and the political uses of art throughout history. He examines how violence in art is formed, contextualised and used by its audiences and readers. Bringing traditional German aesthetic and social theory to bear on the modern problem of violence in art, Appelbaum engages theorists including Kant, Schiller, Hegel, Adorno and Gadamer. The book takes the reader from Homer and Shakespeare to slasher films and performance art, showing how violence becomes at once a language, a motive, and an idea in the experience of art. It addresses the controversies head on, taking a nuanced view of the subject, understanding that art can damage as well as redeem. But it concludes by showing that violence (in the real world) is a necessary condition of art (in the world of mimetic play).</p> <p>Publisher, year: London: Rowman &amp; Littlefield International, 2017.</p> Fri, 12 Jan 2018 07:38:00 GMT https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=687722&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 2018-01-12T07:38:00Z New Doctoral Thesis: Ryan Palmer, Enchanting Irruptions: Wonder, Noir, and the Environmental Imaginary https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=686334&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 <p>This thesis investigates narratives of re-enchantment and disenchantment in three contemporary U.S. novels, Lydia Millet&rsquo;s <em>Mermaids in Paradise</em>, Karen Tei Yamashita&rsquo;s <em>Tropic of Orange</em>, and Thomas Pynchon&rsquo;s <em>Inherent Vice</em>.</p> Fri, 22 Dec 2017 07:38:00 GMT https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=686334&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 2017-12-22T07:38:00Z “The Imperial Short Story.” Special issue of Nordic Journal of English Studies 16/2 (2017) https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=672590&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 <p><img alt="" class="image-right" height="78" src="/digitalAssets/672/c_672590-l_3-k_boys_own_paper_1923_oct.jpg" style="border-style:solid; border-width:0px" width="57" />&ldquo;The Imperial Short Story.&rdquo; Special issue of <em>Nordic Journal of English Studies</em> 16/2 (2017), edited by Stephen Donovan and Leonard Driscoll.</p> <p></p> Mon, 23 Oct 2017 11:53:00 GMT https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=672590&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 2017-10-23T11:53:00Z New Doctoral Thesis: Göran Rönnerdal.

My primary aim is to analyse stability and change in temporal subordinators and clauses across the EModE period; second comes the study of linguistic features, such as aspect, tense, mood and modality, ellipsis and non-finite forms, positions, coordination, and subordination of the temporal clauses. In addition, I examine the progress of these subordinators, and WHEN in particular, across text categories, text types, and the sub-periods.</p> Wed, 23 Aug 2017 16:20:00 GMT https://www.engelska.uu.se/news/nyhetsvisningssida?tarContentId=657148&rssTarget=517510,674808&rssTitle=More%20news&newsDetailSiteNodeId=211742&newsListSiteNodeId=211742&showLeadIn=true&languageId=1&eventId=57080 2017-08-23T16:20:00Z New Doctoral Thesis: Kristen Rau.
