The Faculty of Humanities at the Federal University of Minas Gerais and the Department of English and American Studies at the University of Potsdam are pleased to announce the International Symposium on Linguistics, Cognition, and Culture (LCC), to be held in Belo Horizonte (Brazil) on 13-15 March 2019.

LCC 2019 aims to bring together researchers in the fields of cognitive, cultural and/or anthropological linguistics, interactional sociolinguistics, and intercultural communication. The main objective is to trigger a deeper reflection upon the relationship between language, cognition, and culture in Brazil and beyond. 

We invite contributions that address this relationship from different analytical perspectives. Therefore, we welcome studies that deal with cultural variation in conceptual metaphor, metonymy, and conceptual blends as well as in pragmatic phenomena. Moreover, works dealing with cultural and cognitive aspects of grammar and lexis, of discourse analysis, or of language teaching, translation, and media studies are equally appreciated. Finally, studies on recent methods for the investigation of language, cognition, and culture are also welcome. For more details on the topics of the symposium, please take a look at our call for papers.
