|Meeting Description:||We are pleased to announce that the First Symposium on Linguistic Approaches to Dialects in English Literature (1500-1950) (LADEL) will be held at the University of Salamanca on 26-27 October 2017.
This is one of the academic activities that have been scheduled to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Department of English Philology, the first to offer a degree in Anglo-American Studies in Spain. The Symposium aims to bring together international scholars so that they can discuss different linguistic approaches to the literary representation of older varieties of English (in Britain and overseas), a field which has received renewed scholarly attention over the past few years. We expect that the Symposium may serve as a forum for linguists working in this particular sub-discipline so that they can meet, exchange and learn about other methods and approaches that might actually inform their current work.
The following plenary speakers have already confirmed their participation:
- Prof. Joan C. Beal (University of Sheffield)
- Prof. Marina Dossena (Università degli studi di Bergamo)
