Krawczak Karolina

Chercheuse postdoctorale au Lattice, Professeur adjoint à l’Université Adam Mickiewicz à Poznan (Pologne)

par Karolina Krawczak - publié le , mis à jour le

I received my PhD in linguistics from Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań in 2008. Since then, I have been an Assistant Professor, working toward my habilitation, at the Department of Cognitive Linguistics, at the Faculty of English of Adam Mickiewicz University.

Currently, I am a post-doctoral research fellow at LaTTiCe (CNRS, ENS and Université Paris 3). The fellowship is funded by Fernand Braudel – International Fellowships for Experienced Researchers & Marie Curie Action Programme - COFUND - FP7.

My research concerns the application of quantitative corpus­-driven methodology to the study of abstract concepts. My recent publications and conference presentations focus on social emotions (shame, guilt and embarrassment) as well as epistemic stance taking in English and Polish. I have also published a monograph Epiphenomenal Semantics : Cognition, Context, and Convention and articles devoted to the philosophy of language and theoretical linguistics.

I have co-organized four theme sessions on empirical methods in Cognitive and Functional Linguistics and three international conferences.
