Message 3: Limited space workshops at CSDL

Date: Sun, 07 May 2000 17:57:47 -0700
From: John W. Du Bois <>
Subject: Limited space workshops at CSDL

Re: Limited space workshops at CSDL - sign up NOW

We would like to call your attention to two special workshops, described
below, which will be held on Thursday, May 11 in conjunction with the
fifth conference on "Conceptual Structure, Discourse, and Grammar" (CSDL
2000, May 11-14, 2000), at UC Santa Barbara. The workshops are free to
those who are REGISTERED for the full CSDL conference (not the one-day
registration option), but you must sign up for them in advance. Priority
will be given to those already registered, on a first-come, first-serve
basis. Those who intend to register for the full CSDL conference may ask
to be put on a list for the workshops, but admission will be contingent
on receipt of registration fees.

Space in these workshops is limited, so if you want to participate,
please send us an email stating your intention immediately. Please
include the following information: 

Your name 
Your registration status for the CSDL conference
Email address 
Telephone number 
Do you wish to be placed on the list for participation in: 
 Workshop 1 (Thursday, May 11, 1:30-3:00)? 
 Workshop 2 (Thursday, May 11, 3:30-5:00)?

Please send the above information via email to Ellen Bartee at:

For information on the full CSDL 2000 conference, including registration
information, please consult our WEB SITE at:

We hope to see you soon in Santa Barbara!

John Du Bois
for The Local Organizing Committee

Workshop 1: 
Thursday, May 11, 1:30-3:00
Santa Barbara Harbor Room, UCen

Gilles FAUCONNIER (San Diego)
Mark TURNER (Maryland) 

Eve SWEETSER (Berkeley)

This workshop will focus on the latest research developments in Blending
Theory as developed by Fauconnier and Turner, now emerging from their
year of work together at the Center for Advanced Studies, Stanford.
Sweetser will provide an additional perspective and commentary.

Workshop 2: 
Thursday, May 11, 3:30-5:00
Santa Barbara Harbor Room, UCen

John DU BOIS (Santa Barbara)
Patricia CLANCY (Santa Barbara)
Carol GENETTI (Santa Barbara)
John GUMPERZ (Santa Barbara) 

Sandra THOMPSON (Santa Barbara) 
Amy KYRATZIS (Santa Barbara) 

With all its participants from Santa Barbara, this workshop aims to
present the "Santa Barbara School" approach (if one exists!) to
discourse, with a focus on connections between discourse and grammar. Du
Bois and Clancy will focus on argument structure (in adults and
children), Genetti will focus on grammaticization, and Gumperz will
focus on interactionally distributed cognition. The intention is to
motivate the research agenda through consideration of both the
theoretical assumptions that underlie it, and the kinds of questions,
data, and methods that lead to results. Discussion will be led by
Thompson and Kyratzis.
