AFLiCo Lecture Series 2020 (online)

The Lecture Series is a new initiative by the French Cognitive Linguistics Association (AFLiCo).

The Association has held successful biennial workshops (AFLiCo JET) for 10 years now, and the 6th edition was due to take place in Grenoble in the fall of 2020. AFLiCo JET workshops have provided a forum for high-quality research in cognitive linguistics and, more generally, usage-based approaches to language (see e.g. CogniTextes special issue 19). With the COVID-19 crisis preventing us from planning the usual gathering, we have outlined an alternative proposal. Our 2020 workshop will be held online, and the format will change accordingly.

The series of invited talks took place from the 14th to 18th of December 2020, and they were published in Volume 21 of CogniTextes, the AFLiCo's online journal.

Programme and abstracts

AFLiCo conference

In the spring of every uneven year, the AFLiCo organizes an international conference. The idea is that each conference is hosted by a French or francophone university and has its own theme. Attendance at these conferences as listener is open to any researcher, in France or abroad; however, AFLiCo membership is required for presenters. Submissions for papers are evaluated by a scientific board (double blind review).
