Meeting Description:

Human natural languages are biologically based, cognitively motivated,
affectively rich, socially shared, grammatically organized symbolic
systems. They provide the principal semiotic means for the complexity
and diversity of human cultural life.

As has long been recognized, no single discipline or methodology is
sufficient to capture all the dimensions of this complex and
multifaceted phenomenon, which lies at the heart of what it is to be
human.

The goal of this conference is to contribute to situating the study of
language in a contemporary interdisciplinary dialogue. Many of the
relevant disciplines have made highly significant theoretical,
methodological and empirical advances during the last decade.

We call for contributions from scholars and scientists in
anthropology, biology, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, semiotics,
cognitive and neurosciences, who wish both to impart their insights
and findings, and learn from other disciplines. Preference will be
given to submissions which emphasize interdisciplinarity, the
interaction between culture, mind and language, and/or
multi-methodological approaches in language sciences.
