Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The multitude of linguistic methods in use today raises the concern and need for interdisciplinary communication and collaboration, instead of the traditional relative isolation and autonomy of methodology. It is the aim of this conference to provide a platform for dialogue, where the disciplinary relations between multiple approaches could be evaluated and the possibilities for transfer or integration of methods assessed and discussed.

We invite researchers to present the results of their studies while putting a greater emphasis than usual on the methodological aspects, elaborating on the interrelations between the method and the object of study, guiding assumptions in the theoretical frameworks, and the possibilities for mixing methods and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Plenary speakers are Michael Dunn (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Netherlands), Guillaume Thierry (Bangor University, United Kingdom), Daniel Cohnitz (University of Tartu, Estonia) and Terttu Nevalainen (University of Helsinki, Finland). All speakers have confirmed their participation.
