Linguistic Field(s): Philosophy of Language

Meeting Description:

Res per nomen is a research programme within a Reims University research group, CIRLEP, where linguists and philosophers jointly study the issue of reference in language, i.e. the necessary link between discourse and our experience. The 1st Res per nomen conference was held in May 2007 and took stock of reference in the study of language. The 2nd Res per nomen conference in May 2009 developed the notion that language should be tackled from a more anthropological point of view. Both conferences produced high quality papers and books in French and in English. (See Res per nomen publications on website). Res per nomen 3 will be held in May 2011 and will take a special interest in reference in connexion with consciousness, the ego, subjectivity and the speaking subject. All other aspects of reference in language are most welcome too.
