Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Sociolinguistics
Call Deadline: 19-Jan-2005
The purpose of this small, student-run conference is to provide a relaxed but
serious environment where graduate students in Applied Linguistics and
professionals working in the field of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of
Other Languages) can have the experience of presenting their work and receiving
feedback. The TALGS Conference provides graduate students and TESOL
professionals (including ESOL, TESL, EFL, ESL, TEFL, etc.) a forum to showcase
their research and experiences. TALGS is committed to bettering the educational
experiences of language learners in the community by providing a comfortable
environment where an interaction between theory (the researchers) and practice
(the teachers) is possible.
TALGS is not a theme-based conference. We encourage submissions from a variety
of fields that can make a contribution to an understanding of language teaching
or language learning. This year, we're especially interested in
cross-disciplinary proposal submissions. For instance, proposals with relevance
to language learning from the fields of sociolinguistics, sociology, education,
foreign languages, and psychology will be considered. Proposals grounded in
action research, works in progress, and pilot research are also welcome.
Presentations requiring computer facilities can be accommodated. Multiple
proposals will be considered. Proposals must be submitted electronically and
must be received no later than January 19th, 2005.
a) Research paper presentation sessions of 45 minutes (Presenters can choose to
divide up this time in any way that they see fit, i.e. 30 minute presentation
and 15 minute question/answer session, 45 minute presentation no question/answer
b) 45 or 90 minute workshop sessions (Workshops tend to involve practical,
c) 45 Minute Discussion Panels (Discussion panels involve the leader(s) of the
panel moderating discussion about a specific topic.)

CALL FOR PAPERS
2005 International Symposium on Body & Cognition:
A Multidisciplinary Perspective
June 4-5, 2005
To be held in Taipei, Taiwan.
Sponsored by the Center for Humanities Research of National Science Council
Embodied Cognition arose in the 1980s in Cognitive Sciences as a reaction
against the classical view of mind. In the research on embodied concepts, it is
now generally recognized truth meaning results from intrinsic workings of the
body and the brain, and human understanding of any target domain is structured
first and foremost in the human body and its interaction with the physical
world. We construct cognitive models that reflect concepts concerned with
interaction between the body and the environment and it is this conceptual
embodiment that leads to formulation of basic level concepts. Evidence from
neurosciences also supports embodied concepts.
2005 International Symposium on Body & Cognition: A Multidisciplinary
Perspective seeks to bring together researchers of different backgrounds and
intellectual interests who address the role of body in cognitive processes. The
symposium seeks to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue and integration, in order
to arrive at a richer and more unified perspective. Research questions include,
but are not limited to:
(1) Embodied cognition.
(2) Perception and action.
(3) Emotion and cognition.
(4) Body, cognition, and philosophy.
(5) The role of body in aesthetics.
(6) Emotion in art and the brain.
(7) The cultural contingencies of body in cognition and the deployment of body
in the creation and maintenance of cultural constructs.
The following guest speakers have already confirmed their attendance:
Prof. Melvyn A. Goodale (Psychology, University of Western Ontario);
Prof. Mark Johnson (Philosophy, University of Oregon);
Prof. Emily Martin (Anthropology, New York University);
