INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON EVIDENTIALITY AND MODALITY 2018 (ICEM’18)



FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS



The Department of English Studies: Linguistics and Literature of the Complutense University of Madrid is pleased to announce the International Conference on Evidentiality and Modality 2018 (ICEM’18), which will take place at the Facultad de Filología, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, 19-22 September 2018.



ICEM’18 invites you to submit abstracts for the general session (papers or posters) and also welcomes proposals for theme sessions. The conference aims to cover a wide range of research concerning the domains of evidentiality and modality, with special interest in empirical work, discourse-pragmatic perspectives and cross-linguistic studies.



Some proposed research areas include:


- Epistemicity: relation between evidentiality and epistemic modality

- Cross-linguistic and typological studies on evidentiality

- Corpus-based studies on evidentiality and/or epistemic modality

- Evidential lexical units and constructions and their relation to evidential grammatical markers

- Types of evidentiality: direct vs. Indirect

- Reported speech and reportative evidentiality

- Epistemic stance and inter/subjectivity in discourse

- Interactional approaches to evidentiality and/or epistemic modality

- Epistemic vigilance



A selection of papers based on contributions presented in this conference will be published in a special issue of an international journal and/or a prestigious academic publisher.
