The Institute of English Studies at the University of Rzeszów has the pleasure of announcing the second conference titled Culture and Cognition in Language 2. The conference is aimed at viewing language as a both cultural and cognitive phenomenon. We would like to invite academics specialising in a variety of linguistic fields, both synchronic and diachronic, and contributions in the following research areas will be especially welcome:

- cognitive linguistics
- cultural linguistics
- semantics
- morphology
- sociolinguistics
- pragmatics

Prof. Adam Głaz, Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin, Poland

The central theme of this year’s conference is:
The Significance of Context for Human Conceptual System

Thus, we would like to suggest taking into consideration the role of the following types of context in the process of both meaning construction and meaning interpretation:

- Global context
- Local context
- Main elements of the discourse
- Surrounding discourse
- Previous discourses on the same topic
- Dominant forms of discourse and intertextuality
- Ideology underlying discourse
- Physical environment
- Social context
- Cultural context
- Historical context
- Interests and concerns of groups and individuals

Papers:

While we will especially appreciate presentations aligned with the theme of the conference, we are open to papers on all topics discussing language from the cultural and cognitive perspective.
We invite proposal submissions for 20-minute presentations. Abstracts of a maximum 300 words (excluding references) should be submitted by January 30, 2019 through the EasyChair system. Notification of acceptance will be sent by February 15, 2019.
