Meeting Description:

7th Young Linguists' Meeting in Poznan (YLMP 2021) will take place on 23-25 April 2021 in Poznan, Poland. The conference will be organized by the Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan.

Young Linguists’ Meeting in Poznań (YLMP) is a congress organized by and for young linguists who appreciate the significance of interdisciplinary research and therefore want to go beyond the traditional branches of linguistics. We believe that the connection between linguistics and other fields of study, such as psychology or sociology, is both crucial and pervasive. Our goal is to present the advantages of an integrated approach and emphasize its importance for contemporary linguistic research.

- Wouter Duyck (Ghent University): ''Bilingual disadvantages (reading) and advantages (cognitive control)''
- Katarzyna Jankowiak (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan): ''Rethinking the role of the native and non-native language in the bilingual brain''
- Julien Perrez (University of Liège): ''Metaphor studies as a bridge between linguistics and political science: Theoretical implications and methodological challenges''
- Helen Sauntson (York St John University): ''Rethinking gender and sexuality in the classroom: A corpus-based discourse analysis of classroom interaction''

- Robert Lew (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan): ''Gentle introduction to R for language analysis''
- Julien Perrez (University of Liège): ''Introduction to Corpus Linguistics: Theoretical and methodological basics''
- Helen Sauntson (York St John University): ''Language and sexuality in schools: A practice-oriented workshop''
- Cassandra Smith-Christmas (National University of Ireland, Galway): ''The negotiated nature of language and identity''

The leitmotif of the upcoming conference is “Rethinking language and identity in the multilingual world”.

We encourage graduate and post-graduate students, as well as PhD holders up to five years after their thesis defense, to submit papers to the conference. All other researchers are more than welcome to attend the event without a paper of their own and contribute to the discussions.
