Inaugural Conference of the North American Research Network in Historical Sociolinguistics

3rd / Final Call for Proposals.

Event Date/Time: Friday, 21 July 2017 - 7:00pm to Sunday, 23 July 2017 - 7:00pm.

Co-Located with the 2017 LSA Linguistics Institute – Lexington, Kentucky, USA.

Description: This event is the inaugural public meeting of the North American Research Network in Historical Sociolinguistics (NARNiHS). We invite abstracts for:

• traditional conference presentations (20 minutes, plus 10 Q&A);

• digital poster presentations, including software demonstrations of new research tools and methods;

• workshops providing opportunities for guided, hands-on work with digital research tools and methods for historical sociolinguistic research.

Abstracts can be a maximum of one page in length (plus a second page as needed for diagrams, charts, data tables, and references), and should be sent to: narnihistsoc at gmail.com. The abstract itself should be anonymous, with contact information included in the email.

** NEW ** Deadline for abstracts: May 8, 2017.

We are pleased to note that the posters and software demos will be presented digitally (on landscape-oriented LCD monitors) and will thus allow for interactive display of datasets, visualizations, software tools, etc.

Workshop proposals should emphasize hands-on work with specific digital tools/methods for historical sociolinguistics research and be designed to fit into a 2.5-hour time slot.

Keynote: Stephen Elspaß, Universität Salzburg.

The overall design of this event is intended to maximize exposure to high-level current work in the field of historical sociolinguistics, provide hands-on experience in selected tools and methods in the field, build the professional network, and situate the field within the broader landscape of general linguistics. The event is free and open to all interested parties.

==> Note: This conference is part of a larger series of events at the LSA 2017 Summer Institute that seeks to promote historical sociolinguistics in the North American linguistics community:
