After postponing DGKL-9 to 2021, the German Cognitive Linguistics Association (DGKL/GCLA) is again inviting proposals for new contributions or updates of accepted contributions to its 9th international conference (DGKL/GCLA-9), now to be held from 29th Sept to 2nd October 2021 at Erfurt University.
In line with the framing theme “Cognitive Linguistics as an Interdisciplinary Endeavour: Theoretical and Methodological Challenges”, our confirmed plenary and keynote speakers will bring in a wide variety of cognitive and usage-based perspectives on language, illustrating the impressive methodological repertoire that the proponents of the cognitive-functional paradigm in linguistic research have accumulated over the past decades: Ewa Dąbrowska (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg), Dirk Geeraerts (KU Leuven), Adele E. Goldberg (Princeton University), Irene Mittelberg (RWTH Aachen), Natalia Levshina (MPI Nijmegen), Friedemann Pulvermüller (FU Berlin), Sabine Stoll (UZH, University of Zurich), Kristian Tylén (Aarhus University), Stefanie Wulff (University of Florida & UiT The Arctic University of Norway).
New or updated abstracts for talks and posters can again be submitted via our conference management system from 1st February until 15th March, 2021. If you wish to do so, please go to www.uni-erfurt.de/go/dgkl-9.
