Intended Audience:This workshop is aimed specifically at scholars with sound theoretical knowledge in their cognitive science field though lacking in empirical training, including experimental research. Participants are not expected to have any background at in empirical work. Candidates should at least have completed initial university training, a B.A. in the US, or be working on a Masters degree if training in Europe, in theoretical linguistics or a similar field, and be familiar with cognitive linguistics or embodiment (this familiarity need not have occurred in a formal university setting). Graduate students, i.e. post-grads, pre-doctoral, etc., as well as post-doctoral researchers and junior faculty, are invited to apply. The only real prerequisite is a background in cognitive linguistics or embodiment, and a desire to gain empirical research experience.
