EMCL (Empirical Methods in Cognitive Linguistics): A Workshop on
Image-Schemas and Linguistic Relativity

July 17, 2004

University of Portsmouth, UK
To precede the Language, Culture, and Mind conference (July 18-20)

In cognitive linguistics, image schemas are pre-linguistic cognitive
structures, arising from universal aspects of how the human body
interacts with its environment, both physical and social, and existing
largely outside of conscious awareness. It follows that image schemas
are the same for everyone, regardless of the language a person
speaks. In contrast, the idea of linguistic relativity maintains that
language influences thought. The goal of the workshop is to scrutinize
assumptions surrounding image-schemas and linguistic relativity in an
attempt to elucidate (and resolve) the conflict between the two
research areas.

We invite submissions from researchers working in either or both
areas, and are especially interested in experimental approaches to the
issues. Please send a 500 word anonymous abstract as an attachment in
text format to Monica Gonzalez-Marquez at mg246cornell.edu

Deadline: May 5, 2004
Notification of acceptance: May 20, 2004
