Cfp: "Language, Culture and Mind IV," Abo Akademi University, June 21-23, 2010.
The LCM conference series aims at establishing an interdisciplinary forum for an integration of cognitive, social and cultural perspectives in theoretical and empirical studies of language and communication. LCM will articulate and discuss approaches to human natural language and to diverse genres of language activity which aim to integrate its cultural, social, cognitive, affective and bodily foundations. We call for contributions from scholars and scientists in anthropology, biology, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, semiotics, semantics, discourse analysis, cognitive and neuroscience, who wish both to share their insights and findings, and learn from other disciplines. Plenary Speakers: Docent Jukka Hyönä (University of Turku) Professor Peggy Miller (Illinois University) Professor Cornelia Müller (European University Viardina, Frankfurt/Oder) Professor Bradd Shore (Emory University) Professor Dan Zahavi (University of Copenhagen) Visit the conference webpage here: http://web.abo.fi/fak/hf/fin/LCM4/.
