Intended Audience:
This workshop is aimed specifically at scholars with sound theoretical
knowledge in their field though lacking in empirical training, including
experimental research. Participants are not expected to have any background
at in empirical work. Candidates should at least have completed initial
university training, a B.A. in the US, or be working on a Masters degree if
training in Europe, in theoretical linguistics or a similar field, and be
familiar with cognitive linguistics or embodiment (this familiarity need not
have occurred in a formal university setting). Graduate students, i.e.
post-grads, pre-doctoral, etc., as well as post-doctoral researchers and
junior faculty, are invited to apply. The only real prerequisite is a
background in cognitive linguistics or embodiment, and a desire to gain
empirical research experience.
