Call for Papers: CogLing Days 2022 (8-9 December 2022)

Language, Discourse and Cognition: Interdisciplinary Approaches

Tilburg University, 8-9 December 2022

Cognitive Linguistics is concerned with language and its cognitive underpinnings from a broad methodological perspective. The methodological approaches range from text or corpus analysis to ethnography, and from experiments to focus groups.

Almost by definition, the topics that cognitive linguists look at and the methods they use are also of interest for researchers with a background in related fields such as cognitive science, psychology or culture studies.

After a two-year break, we want to offer all cognitively inspired linguists the opportunity to catch up with each other and to share recent research. At the same time, we would like to invite researchers from adjacent fields to join us and present work that relates to language, discourse and cognition in a broader sense.

The CogLing Days are intended to be a place of meeting, interaction and discussion. For that reason, there is room for oral presentations and posters.

Call for papers

We welcome contributions reporting on recent research in the various strands of cognitive linguistics or cognitively inspired approaches that relate to language, discourse and cognition.

Abstracts must not exceed 500 words, excluding references, and should mention the main research question(s), methodology, data and (expected) results. Abstracts can be submitted for an oral presentation (20’ + 10’ discussion time) or a poster and will be reviewed anonymously. Please submit your anonymous abstract (Word file) via EasyChair and indicate your preference for an oral presentation or a poster. The conference languages are English and Dutch.
