Meeting Description: SHEL is a biennial tradition, providing for scholars the opportunity to gather and share their research and pedagogical methods in relation to the history of English worldwide. It thus serves for North American scholars as an opportunity analogous to the biennial International Conference on English Historical Linguistics (ICEHL) hosted at various research centers in Europe. SHEL is not affiliated with any sole research institution or sponsoring organization. Previous SHEL conferences have been held as follows: SHEL-1 (2000) at UCLA; SHEL-2 (2002) at the University of Washington, Seattle; SHEL-3 (2004, held jointly with GLAC) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; SHEL-4 (2006) at the University of Northern Arizona; SHEL-5 (2007) at the University of Georgia, Athens; SHEL-6 (2009, held jointly with GLAC) at Banff, Alberta (hosted by the Universities of Calgary and British Columbia); SHEL-7 (2012, held jointly with GLAC) at Indian University, Bloomington.
