CALL FOR PAPERS: Investigating Semantics, 10-12 Oct 2013, Bochum, GERMANY

http://www.rub.de/phil-lang/investigating/

ORGANIZATION
Erica Cosentino, Dirk Kindermann, Max Klbel, Maria Spychalska, Markus
Werning.

Natural language semantics is today a wide-ranging and methodologically
diverse discipline. One can distinguish broadly between those who use
experimental methods from those who don't. Mostly, semanticists in
psychology or neuro-science work experimentally, while philosophers,
logicians and linguists work non-experimentally. However, the variety of
approaches and methods among both groups is huge. Even within the camp of
theoretical semantics there are numerous communities: formal semantics,
possible world semantics, discourse representation theory, etc. The same
heterogeneity is present in the camp of empirical researchers: psycho- and
neuro-linguistics, corpus linguistics, etc. The aim of the workshop is to
bring together these different branches which are often working on very
related topics. The workshop will not only present the variety of empirical
and theoretical approaches to semantics, but also invites explicit
discussions of the neurobiological and psychological basis of semantics as
well as its methods, and epistemology.
