Meeting Description: Finding Common Ground:
Social, Ecological, and Cognitive Perspectives on Language Use
June 12-14, 2014
University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT

This is a conference intended to bring together researchers from a variety of traditions that are studying language as an embodied, social, engaged, conversational activity. Most experimental scientific work on language use has focused on written materials; we are particularly interested in theory and research focused on language as a dialogical activity that is meaningful, socially situated, and morally accountable.

Invited Speakers:

- Mark Bickhard, Department of Philosophy, Lehigh University
- Rick Dale, Cognitive and Information Sciences, University of California, Merced
- Elena Cuffari, Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, University of the Basque Country, Spain
