Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science

Meeting Description:

Within the last 25 years or so, Cognitive Linguistics has emerged as a radical
and exciting new approach to the study of language and the mind within the
interdisciplinary project known as Cognitive Science. In that time a rich and
relatively mature set of theories has developed which have by now been applied
to a wide range of linguistic and cognitive phenomena. As Cognitive Linguistics
has grown and matured, debates have emerged regarding foundational theoretical
positions and data collection practices and methodologies. Moreover, in recent
years, both the empirical basis and the interdisciplinary character of Cognitive
Linguistics have been significantly strengthened. The purpose of this
international conference is to take stock of the major achievements associated
with Cognitive Linguistics since its emergence, and to provide a forum for
examining new directions. The conference will also see the inauguration of the
UK Cognitive Linguistics Association.

This is a reminder that the pre-conference registration deadline for the 'New
Directions in Cognitive Linguistics' conference, taking place at the University
of Sussex in October is fast approaching. The deadline is Sept. 19th. Details
of how to register (whether presenting or attending only) are available from the
conference website: www.cogling.org.uk [click on 'Registration'].

The most recent version of the conference schedule has just been posted on the
website [click on conference programme].

This promises to be an extremely exciting event, not to be missed, which in
addition to founding a new national UK Cognitive Linguistics association is
playing host to a large number of cognitive linguists and cognitive scientists
from around the world who will be talking and presenting on a wide range of
topics. The conference also features 7 plenary speakers:

Paul Chilton, 'Dimensions of Discourse'
William Croft, 'Toward a Social Cognitive Linguistics'
Ronald Langacker, 'Constructions and Constructional Meaning'
Brigitte Nerlich, 'Cognitive Linguistics: A Tale of Two Cultures?'
Chris Sinha, 'Mind, Brain, Society: Language as Vehicle and Language as Window'
Mark Turner, 'Blending and Compression'
Jordan Zlatev, 'Intersubjectivity, Bodily Mimesis, and the Grounding of Language'

The conference additionally features three invited theme sessions involving
leading scholars both from within and outside cognitive linguistics. The theme
sessions are:

Cognitive approaches to lexical semantics
Approaches to Conceptual Projection
Making Sense of Embodiment

There is also a satellite event, a tutorial on 'Frame semantics, corpora, and
lexicography' being run by two leading experts: Sue Atkins and Adam Kilgarriff,
[click on 'Satellite event' for details] .

We hope to see you in Brighton in October!
