The 11th International Symposium on Iconicity in Language and Literature is going down in April 2017 in Brighton, UK, and that’s exciting stuff.

Myself, Marcus Perlman, Ashley Micklos, Hannah Little, and a few others saw the call for abstracts and have opted to propose a double panel session titled “Experimental approaches to iconicity in language evolution.” We’re all very excited about the possibilty of presenting our work together, especially as Mark Dingemanse and Pamela Perniss have put themselves forward as discussants for the panel.
