The Institute of English, University of Lodz, and the Polish Cognitive Linguistic Association/PCLA are pleased to announce the annual international conference Cognitive Linguistics in the Year 2021. The conference will take place from 23 to 25 September 2021 (Thursday to Saturday) at the Faculty of Philology, Pomorska Str. 171/173 (http://filolog.uni.lodz.pl/).
We invite proposals of papers and theme sessions on the following aspects of cognitive linguistic enterprise:
Please send proposals of oral presentations to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 March 2021. Each abstract (ca. 500 words, including bibliographical entries in APA format) will be peer-reviewed. The proponents will be notified of acceptance or rejection of their proposal by 30 April 2021. Each participant will be allowed 20 minutes for their presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion. It is recommended that one participant should present no more than one paper. Conference languages are English and Polish.
Proposals of theme session should be submitted to email@example.com by 28 February 2021. A theme session proposal should include the title, a description (ca. 300 words, including bibliography in APA format), and a list of presenters. Notifications of acceptance or rejection will be sent by 15 March 2021. Once a theme session is accepted, papers should be individually submitted for review by 31 March 2021.
The organizers plan to publish selected peer-reviewed papers in two thematic volumes with an international publisher in 2022 or 2023 and in a special issue of the journal Lodz Papers in Pragmatics in 2023. Conference participants are also encouraged to submit papers to PCLA’s electronic journal LaMiCuS – Language, Mind, Culture and Society.
We look forward to meeting you next year!
