This event is sponsored by the Consortium for Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE).

Dr. Nelya Koteyko - Reader in Applied Linguistics, Queen Mary, University of London
Prof. Tim Thornton – Professor of Philosophy and Mental Health, University of Central Lancashire
With this in mind, we specifically encourage contributions that bring together methods and ideas from both of these fields. We also welcome submissions from philosophers who are specifically interested in discussing their work with linguists, and vice versa.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:
Abstracts of up to 300 words (references excluded) should be submitted via the form provided (please see below). All abstracts will go through a double blind-review process.

The deadline for submissions is 20 April 2018, 11:59 (noon).
Notification of acceptance on 4 June 2018.
