Language, Culture and Mind Conference

The 5th Language Culture and Mind conference

Integrating Semiotic Resources in Communication and Creativity

will be held in Universidade Catolica Portuguesa in Lisbon,
27-29 June 2012

The goals of LCM conferences are to contribute to situating the study of language in a contemporary interdisciplinary dialogue, and to promote a better integration of cognitive and cultural perspectives in empirical and theoretical studies of language. This conference series 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.
