(Inter)cultural perspectives on language and the mind
C·C·C / ICPLM, Lublin 2017

The Departments of Cognitive Linguistics and Cultural Linguistics at the Institute of English, Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin, are pleased to announce a series of interdisciplinary conferences (Culture, Cognition, Communication) aimed to offer scholars of different persuasions a convenient forum for sharing ideas and discussing issues concerning the relation between culture, cognition and language from a range of (inter)cultural perspectives. We are interested in research pertaining to the broadly defined areas of

- Language and cognition
- Language and (visual) culture
- Language and society
- Translation theory
- Embodiment and sociocultural situatedness
- Multimodality and intermediality

The (Inter)cultural perspectives on language and the mind (ICPLM 2017) is aimed to be the first edition of the series. In adopting an interdisciplinary slant on the interface between culture, language and the mind, the conference is designed to foster academic co-operation across diverse fields of humanistic studies.

Suggested topics for discussion may pertain to:

- Cognitive pragmatics
- Relevance theory, discourse studies and the pragmatics of humour
- Cognitive approaches to literature
- Cognitive approaches to translation studies
- The word / image interplay and intersemiotic translation
- Iconicity and creativity
- Conceptual metaphor and metonymy
- Mental spaces and conceptual blending
