Culture, Communication and Cognition Conference

Explaining cognitive-cultural components of media and communication

will be held in Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin
7-9 May 2012

The conference is to provide a platform for an interdisciplinary discussion of the interrelations between culture, cognition and communication, with special attention to the cultural and cognitive roles of writing and other media. Anthropologists, communication studies researchers, sociologists, psychologists, philosophers and cognitive scientists are encouraged to challenge ideas concerning the cognitive and cultural functions of communication, language and media. Of particular interest are submissions that explore the interrelations between cognitive science and theories of media and communications, which might be pursued from any of a number of theoretical positions, including: media ecology, medium theory and literacy-orality theory, speech-act theory, critical discourse analysis, semiotics of culture, theory of communicative action and communicology.

Submissions deadline:  29th February 2012
