The Expression, Communication, and Origins of Meaning (ECOM) Research Group is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its second annual interdisciplinary workshop this November on "Expressive Language: Semantics, Pragmatics, and Origins", to be held November 19-20, 2015 at the University of Connecticut.
The workshop will explore theoretical analyses — offered from a variety of perspectives (such as metaethics, philosophy of language, psycho- and socio- linguistics, and cognitive psychology) — of systematic ways in which language is used to express emotions and other attitudes, through, e.g. slurs, pejoratives, laudatives, exclamatives, and evaluative terms.
Our invited speakers are:
- Timothy Jay (Psychology, Massachusetts College)
- Anna Papafragou (Psychology, Delaware)
- Dean Pettit (Philosophy, UNC-Chapel Hill)
- Ljiljana Progovac (Linguistics, Wayne State)
- Mark Richard (Philosophy, Harvard)
We also invite abstracts of short papers by junior researchers (25-30mins) on the topics of the conference. Please submit abstracts in PDF format to Nathan Kellen by October 20th. (Authors of accepted papers will be notified during the following week.)
