Meaning, Context and Implicit Content
Dates: May 31 - June 7, 2011
Location: Château de Cerisy-la-Salle, Normandy, France
Detailed Program : https://sites.google.com/site/cerisycontext/home/schedule
Philosophy of language has witnessed important developments over the last ten years, focusing on the interplay between meaning and context, as well as the role of implicit content in linguistic communication. The progress made by philosophers of language on those issues is closely connected with the research of linguists on the semantics/pragmatics interface. These various advances will be reviewed and assessed from the perspectives of both philosophy of language and linguistics. The event will be mixed: part conference and part summer school (with the sponsorship of CNRS), it will also be a meeting point for two European networks of researchers working on the themes of the meeting. There will be a series of symposia on specific topics; mini-courses given by specialists of the field; presentations by selected international graduate students and young scholars; and meetings/workshops organized by the two research networks.
