Fiction is a topic that has long been studied by literary scholars and philosophers of art. But recently we have seen a surge of interest in studying fictional discourse within the intersection between linguistics and philosophy of language. This conference brings together a number of well established key researchers from these two disciplines to foster this exciting new interdisciplinary approach to a number of longstanding issues concerning the interpretation of fiction
