Our sense of agency and ability to distinguish between intentional and accidental actions are fundamental for social interaction. They allow us to plan and perform joint actions and assign responsibility for our own actions and those of others. Research on the nature of agency and intentions has been very fruitful over the last few decades both in philosophy and in linguistics. However, interdisciplinary discussion has rarely taken place.

We are delighted to announce the first interdisciplinary workshop on Agency and Intentions in Language. The goal of the workshop is to bring together scholars in linguistics and philosophy interested in questions related to agency and intentions.
