Internal and External Factors in Linguistic Stability and Language Change
The Department of English at Uppsala University will host the Sixth International Conference on Late Modern English (LMEC 6) on August 17-19, 2017. The conference will accommodate full papers in general sessions and themed workshops, in addition to plenaries. We invite you to submit contributions that shed light on the theme of the conference, i.e. *Internal and External Factors in Linguistic Stability and Language Change*.
Full papers: 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for discussion.
Workshops: a total of two workshops can be scheduled (both on 18 August).
Submission of abstracts for full papers
Abstracts for general session papers can be submitted from 1 July to 30 September 2016. Abstracts should be sent as e-mail attachments to the conference e-mail address lmec6 at engelska.uu.se. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words (exclusive of references) and should clearly state research questions, method, data, and (expected) results. Abstracts should be submitted as Word documents; if your abstract contains special characters, please also send a .pdf version. Notification of acceptance of abstracts will be sent out by 15 November 2016.
Submission of workshop proposals
Workshop proposals can be submitted from 1 July to 30 September 2016. Proposals should be sent as e-mail attachments to the conference e-mail address lmec6 at engelska.uu.se. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 15 October 2016. Workshop proposals should contain a 1000-word description of the topic (including the research questions to be addressed), a (provisional) list of workshop participants, and (provisional) titles of workshop papers. Workshop proposals should be submitted as Word documents; if your proposal contains special characters, please also send a .pdf version. After a workshop proposal has been accepted, the convenors should send the final versions of the participants? abstracts to lmec6 at engelska.uu.se by 30 November 2016. Workshops have to be compatible with the main conference schedule. This means that the format of the workshops must be organized around 30-minute presentations (20 min. + 10 min. discussion). Workshops may contain up to five papers. Further details can be discussed with the LMEC 6 organizing committee.
The conference website will be up and running in early autumn 2016. More information on the address of the website will be given in a later announcement. The conference e-mail address will be active as of 1 July 2016; if you have any questions before that date, please contact either of the conference organizers (see below for e-mail addresses).
We look forward to seeing you in Uppsala in 2017!
