Appel à communications :
Abstracts are invited for the 29th International Colloquium of the Studienkreis Geschichte der Sprachwissenschaft, which will be held from Wednesday 4 July (day of arrival) to Saturday 7 July 2018 in Potsdam.
The venue is the rooms below the main lecture theatre (Auditorium maximum) at campus am Neuen Palais of the University of Potsdam. The colloquium will begin on the evening of 4 July with pre-conference drinks, to which participants of the Franco-German doctoral research meeting « Kollokationen und Diskurstraditionen », which will take place on the same day, are also invited.
The colloquium theme « Language and Context » is intended to widen our perspective beyond linguistic categories and conceptualization processes. The focus will be on both the history of semantic theories which put emphasis on context as well as the development of pragmatic approaches that seek to explain the functioning of linguistic signs in situated and social contexts. Also included is of course the contexts of linguistic theory formation. Talks on any era and tradition in the history of linguistics are welcome.
We ask all prospective participants to register with an e-mail to both organizers as soon as possible, but no later than 15 February 2018. Those who wish to give a talk should provide a title and abstract of around 200-200 words in German or English. Talks can be in German, English, French or Spanish. The conference fee will be around €70.
We look forward to seeing you in Potsdam!
