Meeting Description:

University of Brighton, UK

11th International Symposium on Iconicity in Language and Literature, 6-8
April 2017


The eleventh in a series of biennial international and interdisciplinary
symposia organized by the Iconicity Research Project since 1997, this meeting
will once again focus on iconicity, resemblance mappings between form and
meaning, in language and in literature. The theme of the 2017 symposium is the
“operationalization of iconicity”, concerned with being able to define and
describe different types and levels of iconicity as they appear in different
media and modalities. We especially welcome proposals for papers dedicated to
this theme, but encourage submissions investigating iconicity from a broad
range of perspectives.

Keynote Speakers:

Neil Cohn (Tilburg University, Netherlands)
Mark Dingemanse (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen,
Lucia Santaella (São Paulo Catholic University, Brazil)

Call for Papers:

Previous symposia have concentrated, on the one hand, on iconicity as a
driving force in language (spoken and signed) on all grammatical levels, as
well as in language change, language acquisition, and language processing. On
the other hand, they have addressed iconicity in language use across a range
of media (from print to performance), incorporating the uses of iconic images,
diagrams and metaphors at different levels of abstraction and in all varieties
of text and discourse (literary texts, historical texts, political  texts,
advertising, etc.). These possibilities remain open for the 2017 symposium.

The symposium will be hosted by the School of Humanities, University of
Brighton, UK. The symposium language will be English. Please contact the
organisers regarding sign language interpretation. Presentation time for
papers will be 30 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. A selected
number of essays will be published in the ''Iconicity in Language and
Literature'' (ILL) series published by John Benjamins

Abstract submission: 

We invite abstracts (450 words maximum, excluding references) of unpublished
work for individual papers and theme panels. Theme panels should focus on a
well-defined topic and should consist of three individual papers
(corresponding to a two-hour slot). Abstracts for individual papers composing
a theme should be submitted in addition to an abstract proposing the theme.

Important dates: The deadline for abstract submission is 15 November 2016.
Please submit abstracts to all three organizers (see names and emails listed
