Meeting Description:

The Department of English Philology at the University of Zielona Gora announces:

The 2nd International Conference on Language, Thought and Education: Exploring Networksheld in Zielona Gora, Polandon June 1, 2012

We are interested in a wide range of subjects which refer to the studies of language and language-related issues. This year we would like to focus on exploring networks.

'Network' is a term with a broad meaning; within the scope of the conference it generally refers to the relationships and interactions among nodes in various fields, such as semantics, lexis, morphology, cognitive/cultural categories or language transfer and bilingualism. By 'exploring networks' we understand research studies which cast new light on the workings of [inter-] language systems, cross-cultural communication and the cognitive architecture of both language learners and translators, as well as other interrelated systems which enable humans to communicate.
