Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Psycholinguistics

Meeting Description:

Applications are open for the 6th Empirical Methods in Cognitive Linguistics workshop, to be held at Case Western Reserve University, in Cleveland, Ohio, August 1-5, 2012. See https://sites.google.com/site/emcl6case/ for more information.

The goal of EMCL is to facilitate dialogue among language researchers with different methodological backgrounds, i.e. theorists, experimentalists, corpus linguists, etc. We do this by creating an environment where specialists learn from each other by developing a research project together where their various skills are combined.

Intended Audience:

Language researchers with an embodiment, situated cognition and/or cognitive linguistics background. No prior experimental or corpus training is required though an understanding of the theoretical issues is necessary. Participants can be at different early stages in their careers, i.e. graduate students, post-grads, post-docs, junior faculty, etc.

Workshop Format:

During the course of a week, participants will join one of 5 hands-on mini-labs. Each mini-lab will be responsible for completing a joint research project. A select group of students (max. 8 per group for a total of 40) will be invited to participate. Each group will work with two researchers who will guide the group in selecting an idea for the group to investigate, structuring and organizing a research project, and carrying it out. The session will end with the presentation of findings and a general discussion.

Topics to be covered include:

- Deciding on a research topic
- Transforming the research topic into a research question
- Developing experimental hypotheses and designing an experiment
- Data collection
- Statistical analysis and interpretation
- Presentation of findings to an audience
- Post-Workshop write up of the research, as a brief article

Faculty Groups:

Group 1: Seana Coulson and Shelli Feist
Group 2: Daniel Casasanto and Todd Oakley
Group 3: Ben Bergen and Laura Casasanto
Group 4: Fey Parrill and Vera Tobin
Group 5: Kensy Cooperrider and Michael Spivey

Application: Please see our website for details. Completed applications must be submitted to emcl6case at gmail.com by April 8, 2012.

Participation Fee: $160. We have 1 tuition scholarship available for a student from Eastern Europe or a developing country which will be awarded by lottery.

This workshop is sponsored by the International Cognitive Linguistics Association (ICLA), http://www.cognitivelinguistics.org/


Extended deadline and final call for participation - now April 8.
