Sixth International Conference on *Language, Culture and Mind*
June 24-26, Lublin, Poland
Contact: info at

Deadline for *abstract submission* of individual papers and posters: 
*Jan 20, 2014*.

The Sixth International Conference on Language, Culture and Mind (LCM VI)
will be held on *24-26 June 2014* at the Maria Curie-Sklodowska University
in Lublin, Poland. It will be preceded by a *Young Researchers Workshop* on
23 June 2014 (same venue), where young researchers will present their
ongoing dissertation projects and other work.

The goals of LCM conferences are to contribute to situating the study of
language in a contemporary interdisciplinary dialogue (involving
philosophy, linguistics, psychology, anthropology, semiotics and related
fields), and to promote a better integration of cognitive and cultural
perspectives in empirical and theoretical studies of language.

Confirmed plenary speakers:
Nancy *Budwig* <> (Clark
University, Psychology)
Henryk *Kardela* (Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Linguistics)
Alan *Rumsey* <>
(Australian National University, School of Culture, History & Language)
Farzad *Sharifian*
<> (Monash
University, Language and Society Centre)
Beata *Stawarska* <> (University
of Oregon, Philosophy)

The theme for LCM VI is: *Inside/Out: Practice and Representation*

While some focus on the representational nature of language and mind,
others regard them as socially embedded and embodied practices. We
encourage submissions that further investigate the dynamic between practice
and representation and critically examine stereotypical or mainstream
conceptions of representations as internal and practices as external.

We invite abstract submissions for oral presentations, posters and
symposia. (Please clearly indicate your chosen format with your submission.)

• Oral presentations
Title, name, affiliation, 400 word abstract
20 min presentation + 10 minute discussion
