Call for Papers: Seventh International Conference of the German Cognitive Linguistics Association: Cognitive Approaches to Interaction and Language Attitudes

The Seventh International Conference of the German Cognitive Linguistics Association (DGKL/GCLA) will be held at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany (Campus Essen). The central theme is Cognitive approaches to interaction and language attitudes. The conference is organized by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Imo, Dr. Jens Philipp Lanwer and Prof. Dr. Evelyn Ziegler and will take place from October 5 to October 7, 2016.

Conference languages will be English and German.


We are looking forward to abstracts for papers dealing either with this year’s main topic – Cognitive Approaches to interaction and language attitudes – or with other topics in the area of cognitive usage-based linguistics. We welcome contributions dealing with different aspects of cognitive linguistics as well as contributions taking a cognitive perspective on language on the basis of methods employed in corpus linguistics, historical linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology and artificial intelligence or explorations of the links between these disciplines and cognitive linguistics.

We welcome submissions of presentations, posters or theme sessions.
