Meeting Description:

SinFonIJA 11 thematic session 2: Theoretical linguistics within cognitive science: current research directions

There is no doubt that attempts to make direct connections between linguistic concepts and work done in fields such as cognitive neuroscience, computational modeling, and evolutionary and comparative biology are important and potentially fruitful, but they also face a number of conceptual and methodological issues. To turn the spotlight on the bidirectional connection between linguistic theory and cognitive science and the possibilities of progress that can be made based on collaborative work, the Theoretical linguistics within cognitive science: current research directions session will focus on the following issues:

- The contributions which linguistics can make to the development of other fields within cognitive science
- The ways in which non-linguistic enterprises can inform linguistic theory
- Theoretical considerations
- Methodological issues
- Concrete cases of fruitful interaction
- Working proposals for research interaction

The keynote and participant presentations related to this theme will be complemented by a round table discussion on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
