Cognitive Linguistics in the Year 2023

The Polish Cognitive Linguistics Association (PCLA), Cracow Tertium Society for the Promotion of Language Studies and the Institute of Humanities of the State Academy of Applied Sciences in Krosno invite you to take part in the international conference entitled: Cognitive Linguistics of the Year 2023, which will be held on September 13-15, 2023 in Krosno, Poland under the leading theme: 

Applied Cognition: Thought and Action.

For half a century of its history, cognitive linguistics has achieved the status of a separate linguistic approach: it has a number of schools with its leaders, it has developed theory and terminology, there are numerous textbooks and university courses devoted to CL. Cognitive Linguistics has become an international school of thinking about the history and present of language, about the processes of linguistic change, its figuration patterns. It systematically began to expand its interest from the sentence to discourse and poetics, towards multimodality, multimediality and language corpora, extending its scope beyond English and Indo-European languages. The source of its success has been the assimilation of historical achievements of linguistic research and the attempt to create both a uniform and polycentric approach. In this edition of the conference we propose a focus on the application of Cognitive Linguistic discoveries in the context of language teaching and in the analysis of public discourse. Needless to say abstracts on other topics related to CL are also welcome.

The languages of the conference will be Polish and English.

The conference is planned to be held on site in Krosno, Poland. However, there is a possibility of online participation as well, in cooperation with the Organizers.

Selected articles based on conference presentations are planned to appear in the LaMiCuS (Language, Mind, Culture and Society) journal, which is published in the electronic format under the auspices of PCLA; besides a special issue in another journal or possibly a monographic volume in an international publishing house is planned as well.

The conference will be held under the auspices of the Rector of the State Academy of Applied Sciences in Krosno, Professor Zbigniew Barabasz.
