Meeting Description: GIST is proud to announce Cartographic Structures and Beyond, to take place
on 4, 5 and 6 June 2014 at Ghent University. This three day event unites a
number of senior and junior linguists whose work shares the ultimate goal
of exploring how linguistic data - both diachronic and synchronic - drawn
from a number of diverse languages can shed light on the general theory of
language, and conversely, how linguistic theory can shed new light on the
linguistic data.

One specific aim of the conference will be that of showcasing recent
interdisciplinary work cutting across the domains of linguistics and
psycholinguistics, focussing in particular on language acquisition, in
different modes, in typical and atypical development. Other papers will
explore ways of integrating constraints on movement and/or on structure
building with the functional hierarchies that have been established in the
cartographic tradition. The latter theme is also the focus of the FWO
research project Layers of Structure and the Cartography Project at Ghent
University ( The PostDoc researchers
involved in this research project will also be presenting their own work at
this event.
