Call for Papers and Workshop Proposals:

8th Biennial International Conference on the Linguistics of Contemporary English (BICLCE 2019)

Date: 26-Sep-2019 – 28-Sep-2019 Location: University of Bamberg, Germany


We are pleased to announce that the 8th Biennial International Conference on the Linguistics of Contemporary English (BICLCE 2019) will be held from 26 to 28 September 2019 at the University of Bamberg, Germany.

The plenary speakers are: Tony McEnery (Lancaster University) Anne O’Keeffe (Mary Immaculate College, Limerick) Carita Paradis (Lund University) Javier Pérez-Guerra and Elena Seoane (University of Vigo) Benedikt Szmrecsanyi (Catholic University of Leuven)

The aim of the BICLCE conference is to encourage communication and academic cross-fertilization between researchers working on all aspects of contemporary English and using different theoretical and methodological frameworks. BICLCE provides a platform for work on contemporary varieties of English from various perspectives. Research papers and workshops may address topics in syntax, morphology, sociolinguistics, semantics and pragmatics, discourse analysis, cognitive linguistics, as well as phonetics and phonology. Purely historical work is less suitable at this conference, but papers that draw upon diachronic evidence to support studies of present-day English are very welcome.

We invite abstracts on every aspect of the linguistics of contemporary English for

1.     Full papers (20 minutes), 2.     Poster presentations, 3.     Thematic workshops (featuring up to 6 individual papers).

Please submit your proposals for presentations and posters via http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/biclce2019. The submission deadline is 31 December 2018.

For workshop proposals, please get in touch with the organizers directly (biclce2019.eng-ling at uni-bamberg.de). The submission deadline is 15 December 2018.

The BICLCE organizing team: Manfred Krug (Chair of English Linguistics), Jenny Herzky, Gabriele Knappe, Katrin Landwehr, Heinrich Ramisch, Katharina Scheiner, Julia Schlüter, Ole Schützler, Lukas Sönning, Fabian Vetter, Valentin Werner
