Young Linguists' Meeting in Poznań (YLMP) is a conference organised by and for young linguists who appreciate the significance of interdisciplinary research and therefore want to go beyond the traditional branches of linguistics. We believe that the connection between linguistics and other fields of study, such as psychology or sociology, is both crucial and pervasive. Our goal is to present the advantages of an integrated approach and emphasize its importance for contemporary linguistic research.
The interdisciplinarity of the conference is expressed in its leitmotif, which is "Linguistics: A separate branch or an integrated field of science? Recent trends in linguistic research".
The meeting is intended to be the first of a series of annual meetings. It is meant as a forum for discussion for all those who are interested in language and its connections with other fields of modern science. The idea comes from M.A. student Łukasz Pakuła, who is currently collaborating with members of the IFA staff and his fellow students, Małgorzata Trojan and Dorota Jaworska, in the organisation of YLMP.
We are happy to announce that the Young Linguists' Meeting in Poznań (YLMP2009) will take place on 24–26 April 2009 in Poznań, Poland. The Meeting will be organised by the School of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań.
The leitmotif of the YLMP2009 will be "Linguistics: A separate branch or an integrated field of science? Recent trends in linguistic research". Proposals of papers related to this main theme, as well as to other fields of modern linguistics, are invited.
