Meeting Description: We are pleased to announce that the 5th edition of the international Biennial Conference on the Diachrony of English (CBDA-5) will take place in Tours, France, from July 4 to July 6 2017, hosted by the Université François-Rabelais and organised in collaboration with the Université de Picardie Jules-Verne (Amiens) and the Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne (Reims).

The main objective of the conference is to provide linguists working on the history of English with an opportunity to present their work and a forum within which to discuss current issues in English diachronic linguistics.

Further information will shortly be made available on the meeting website:

Plenary Speaker:

Our invited speaker at this year’s conference will be Marion Elenbaas, of the University of Leiden.

Conference Fee:

The conference fee is 40 euros (20 euros for students), and includes participation in all sessions of the conference, the conference package, and light refreshments. All participants, however, are expected to pay their own travel and accommodation expenses.

We look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you to the beautiful medieval and Renaissance city of Tours.

Please note that this edition of the Conference will be dedicated to the memory of Professor Xavier Dekeyser, of the University of Leuven, who had actively supported CBDA since its inception in 2008. Xavier passed away on May 23rd, 2016, and this is a very painful loss for all the organizers.
