15-26 August 2016, DGfS Summer School "Mapping Meaning", Tübingen, Germany

Date: 15-26 August 2016
Location: Tübingen, Germany

The traditional linguistic research asks what the meaning of linguistic expressions is. Newer approaches, however, draw attention to the question of how the meaning of natural language arises. The DGfS Summer School Mapping Meaning: Theory – Cognition – Variation would like to follow this new perspective by focusing on the dynamics and adaptivity of linguistic meaning. Taking up these key issues of the Collaborative Research Center 833 in Tübingen, the summer school aims at providing an inspiring forum for discussing the meaning constitution of natural language from theoretically and methodologically different points of view.

The Summer School is co-organized by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft (DGfS), the Collaborative Research Center 833 (SFB 833), the Research Training Group 1808 (GRK 1808) and the Forum Scientiarum in Tübingen.
Minimum Education Level: Advanced students (Ph.D. or M.A. level, advanced B.A. student)
Description:Renowned researchers from Germany, Europe and the United States will offer a total of 18 courses. The language of instruction will be English. The courses are assigned to three thematic areas – Theory, Cognition, and Variation.
