CONFERENCE PRIMARY THEMES
The conference’s major foci are in line with the directions of the previous AFLiCo conferences, while integrating recent evolutions in the field, in connection with contiguous fields. The conference welcomes proposals linking cognitive and linguistic topics while taking into account social and cultural contexts, to model or document the integration of social and cultural information into linguistic structures (indexical properties of sound, lexical, grammatical or discursive patterns), or to examine how linguistic variety shapes social and cultural representations.
The following areas are especially relevant to these thematic sessions:
Each of these areas is part of a common trend, bringing together social and cognitive science. The 6th AFLICO conference will be about the development of this trend in connection with the framework of Cognitive Linguistics. Our topics for 2015 encourage pluridisciplinary work along this new line of thought. In this line of work, the following issues have taken on special importance:
The conference will not be limited to thematic sessions devoted to the main foci described above. The organisers also encourage researchers to submit proposals within other areas of cognitive linguistics.
The organisers further encourage young researchers to submit an abstract.
Abstracts for 20-minute oral presentations will be submitted to a double, blind review. They should be fully anonymous and not exceed 500 words (references excluded). Submission is to be done via a login on the conference the website.
Format for abstract
Abstracts may be submitted in English or French.
