The Sixth International Conference on Language, Culture and Mind (LCM VI) will be held on 24-26 June 2014 at the Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin, Poland. It will be preceded by a Young Researchers Workshop on 23 June 2014 (same venue), where young researchers will present their ongoing dissertation projects and other work.
The goals of LCM conferences are to contribute to situating the study of language in a contemporary interdisciplinary dialogue (involving philosophy, linguistics, psychology, anthropology, semiotics and related fields), and to promote a better integration of cognitive and cultural perspectives in empirical and theoretical studies of language.
The theme for LCM VI is: Inside/Out: Practice and Representation. While some focus on the representational nature of language and mind, others regard them as socially embedded and embodied practices. We encourage submissions that further investigate the dynamic between practice and representation and critically examine stereotypical or mainstream conceptions of representations as internal and practices as external.
Plenary speakers: Nancy Budwig, Henryk Kardela, Alan Rumsey, Farzad Sharifian, Beata Stawarska
Deadline for abstract submission: 30 Nov 2013 (symposia), 31 Dec 2013 (papers, posters).
The LCM VI Young Researchers Workshop is a satellite event of the LCM VI conference, aimed at graduate students and junior scholars conducting theoretical or empirical research in language and communication including, but not limited to cognitive, social, affective, embodied and/or cultural perspectives. The workshop aims at providing a forum for presenting results and foster interaction and debate in the context of interdisciplinary collaboration. Young researchers in anthropology, biology, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, semiotics, semantics, discourse analysis, cognitive and neuroscience are invited to share, and thereby enrich, their study of human natural language and communication. A specialist’s comment on each accepted contribution makes the workshop a unique opportunity to receive expert feedback.
Deadline for abstract submission: 31 Dec 2013.
