Ways to protolanguage:
the initial stages of the evolution of the language faculty


http://www.protolang.umk.pl/

FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

We'd like to cordially invite you to taking part in the conference
Ways to protolanguage: the initial stages of the evolution of the language faculty.
The conference will take place 21 - 23. 09.09 in Toruń, Poland.

The fascinating and thought provoking subject area of language evolution is all
the more interesting because of the wealth of recently available empirical data
that have been changing its profile for the last two decades. One of the primary
goals of this conference is bringing together researchers representing diverse
areas to gain a multidisciplinary perspective on the range of currently
available evidence relevant to early language evolution.

The focus of the conference is on the early stages of the emergence of symbolic,
language-like communication in hominids. The helpful term protolanguage is
intended in a broad understanding, as (the capacity for developing) the most
primitive communicative system that is nevertheless characterised by certain
language-like features, such as the use of the conventional sign and intentional
transfer of honest infromation - and thus differing qualitatively from what is
found in present-day communication of nonhuman animals.

The conference will reflect the inherently interdisciplinary nature of research
into the evolution of language. We invite papers from a wide range of subjects
related to the initial stages of language evolution, including general
evolutionary theory, evolutionary psychology, pleistocene archaeology,
paleoanthropology, genetics of language disorders, cultural anthropology, speech
physiology, gesture studies, neuroscience of speech, primatology, animal
cognition, animal communication.

A central theme will be the importance of bringing together many kinds of varied
evidence for drawing a complex picture of the evolution of language, especially
in its earliest stages. Consequently, papers accessible to audiences across
discipline boundaries are preferred to very specific papers requiring highly
specialised background. Speculative scenarios centred around particular
selective pressures are strongly discouraged; instead, we encourage
presentations discussing latest relevant empirical findings, basic
methodological issues, constraints on scenarios, identifying stages,
synthesising recent findings from a relevant field (e.g. major points of
consensus/controversy), etc.
