    This seminar invites literary and linguistic scholars who use various types of letters as their research material to submit papers on letters and letter writing from early English correspondence to present-day computer-mediated communication. Presentations for this session might deal with such topics as the origin, form and purpose of a letter; the influence of letters on different types of discourse (eg newsletters, epistolary novels); the role of letter-writing instruction and writing manuals; and the linguistic characteristics common to letters in different times.
