Meeting Description:

The Departments of Linguistics and Philosophy at the University of Chicago
will host a two-day workshop, May 19-20, 2017, that aims to bring together
recent innovations and novel perspectives on the phenomenon of subjectivity in
language and thought. The workshop is funded by the Neubauer Collegium for
Culture and Society.

Expressions whose meaning have a distinctly subjective dimension, most notably
predicates of personal taste, have received increased attention by linguists
and philosophers in the last decade or so. In addition to the extensively
debated phenomenon of ''faultless disagreement,'' the fact that across
languages certain attitude verbs such as English 'find' require their
complement to be subjective in a distinct way raises unique conceptual and
empirical challenges to a comprehensive theory of natural language meaning.
Several researchers have explored issues about subjective expressions beyond
their significance for the relativism-vs-contextualism debate that is so
prominent in linguistics and philosophy of language, including: the types of
subjective meanings that natural languages encode, the subjective dimensions
of modality, and the evidential dimension of subjective predicates and
attitude verbs. The aim of this workshop is to continue this trend by bringing
together innovative perspectives on subjective language and thought in an
interdisciplinary setting.

Invited Speakers:

Elizabeth Coppock  (University of Gothenburg)
Anastasia Giannakidou (University of Chicago)
Daniel Lassiter (Stanford University)
Alda Mari (Institut Jean Nicod, ENS, CNRS)
Dilip Ninan (Tufts University)

We invite abstracts for 30-minute talks (plus 15 mins discussion) in any area
related to the workshop topics. We especially encourage submissions that

These limitations will be strictly enforced. In addition to the intellectual
merit of the abstract, clarity and readability will also be taken into account
in reviewing.
