Meeting Description: The international conference ‘Historical Corpora 2012’ will be organised by the LOEWE Priority Program ‘Digital Humanities’, which is concerned with evolving the fruitful collaboration of Humanities with Computer Sciences. One major focus within the Priority Program is devoted to examining diachronic features in electronic text corpora. ‘Historical Corpora 2012’ is going to cover the aspects needed for including diachrony into corpus based studies. One focus will be on Historical Linguistics, but contributions from other fields of Humanities dealing with historical corpora are strongly encouraged, as to show the growing realm of applicability of electronic corpora and to create stimulating discussions.

Keynote speakers will be Tony Kroch (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia), Martin Durrell (University of Manchester), Karin Donhauser (Humboldt-Universität, Berlin), Gerhard Heyer (Universität Leipzig), Gerhard Lauer (Georg-August-Universität, Göttingen).

A special workshop will be dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the TITUS project.

Local organising committee: Jost Gippert, Anne Bohnenkamp-Renken, Alexander Mehler, Cecilia Poletto, Henning Reetz, Helmut Weiss, Ralf Gehrke.

International board of reviewers: Pietro Beltrami (Pisa), Karin Donhauser (Berlin), Martin Durrell (Manchester), Gerhard Heyer (Leipzig), Gerhard Lauer (Göttingen), Tony Kroch (Philadelphia), Anke Lüdeling (Berlin), Rosemarie Lühr (Jena), Marc van Oostendorp (Leiden), Andrea Rapp (Darmstadt).
