Adijata Ibrišimović Šabić


The paper highlights the professional and expert scientific research of the member of the Academy of Sciences and Arts of Bosnia and Hezegovina, full-time professor at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Sarajevo, Ms. Marina Katnić-Bakaršić. Special emphasis is drawn to the author’s monographs, as well as the reception and responses to her research from the academic community, which are quite a few in number. The Academy member and professor Ms. Marina Katnić-Bakaršić proves and shows that contemporary stylistics is inevitably interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary, and offers guidelines for its further development. Emphasizing the importance of foundation in theory and knowledge in various linguistic, semiotic, social, and disciplines of literary theory, the author advocates for introducing the eclectic approach; in other words, for the combination of different models, which include description, analysis, and interpretation. The pioneer work of the Academy member and professor Katnić-Bakaršić in discourse stylistics and critical discourse analysis (CDA), as well as feminist language theory and the advancement of the subject of stylistics in other semiotic systems, notably visual ones, represents a special contribution to stylistics development in our region.
