Meeting Description: TimeLing 2012 Conference
Time & Temporality in Language and Human Experience
Chair of English Language & Applied Linguistics
Chair of English & General Linguistics
University of Lodz, Poland
Date: 11-13 October 2012
Venue: University of Lodz Conference Centre

The conference will offer a forum for the presentation of multidisciplinary perspectives on the concept of time and its embodied, phenomenological experience as expressed in diverse systems, above all human language, and should thus be of interest to students and researchers in philosophy, anthropology and psychology of time. Also welcome are scholars who investigate temporal experience, time expressions and categorization in language and literature, including metaphor and figurative language, learning-acquisition of temporal concepts as well as annotation and identification of temporal structures in language corpora. In addition, the organizers hope to attract researchers who propose cognitive, formal and other models of time and time-related dimensions in the framework of event structures. Presentations pertaining to the construal and coding of events in linguistic or non-linguistic narrative, gestures and other forms of human communication systems would be relevant.

The conference is organized as part of the activities within the COST Action TIMELY.
