We’re very pleased to announce a Call for Papers for ECOM’s new biennial conference Expression, Language, and Music (ELM) Conference, May 13-15, 2020 (to be held at the Lyceum Center, Hartford, CT). The abstract submission deadline is December 9, 2019.

The conference will bring together researchers from linguistics, philosophy, cognitive science, music theory, dance theory, anthropology, and neurobiology with the aim of integrating recent findings and insights from diverse perspectives concerning the significance of expression in music, dance, and language, the importance of systematic structure in these domains, and the interrelations between expressive, musical, and communicative capacities and their relevance for understanding the emergence of language (in ontogeny and phylogeny).

Our invited speakers are:

·         Tecumseh Fitch (Cognitive Biology, University of Vienna)

·         Kathleen Higgins (Philosophy, University of Texas, Austin)

·         Ray Jackendoff (Linguistics, Tufts University)
