Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2004

Meeting Description:

The Peterborough Chronicle Panel is concerned with linguistic and
other approaches to the mid-twelfth-century manuscript 'E' of the
Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, better known as the 'Peterborough
Chronicle'. The panel will be organized in connection with the 13th
International Conference on English Historical Linguistics (ICEHL) at
the University of Vienna in August 2004. The Peterborough Chronicle
Panel (ICEHL 13, Vienna, August 23-28, 2004)

The Peterborough Chronicle Panel is concerned with a variety of
linguistic and other approaches to the mid-twelfth-century manuscript
'E' of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, better known as the 'Peterborough
Chronicle' (PC). The panel will be organized in connection with the
13th International Conference on English Historical Linguistics at the
University of Vienna next August.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The PC is an outstanding example of very early Middle English and as
such known to practically everyone teaching the history of English. It
continues to be a valuable source of data for many historical
linguists and philologists, especially those interested in the
transition from Old to Middle English. Its linguistic structures and
phenomena on the phonological, morphological, syntactic, lexical,
orthographic, and discourse level have not ceased to attract the
attention of historical linguists. We believe it is now time for a
conference workshop dedicated solely to this manuscript, its language
and its historical embedding. The objective of the panel is to bring
together scholars working on various aspects of the PC and inform the
audience about current issues in their work.

We invite 20-minute papers dealing with any aspect of the language or
history of the Peterborough Chronicle, with emphasis on the
post-Conquest entries. The perspective may be either research-oriented
or reflect the use of the PC as teaching material at university
level. Linguistic papers with focus on other aspects than syntax are
particularly welcome.

The deadline for abstracts is 15th January, 2004. Please e-mail a
300-word abstract to the panel organizers as plain text in the body of
the message. More information is available at
http://www.utu.fi/hum/engfil/pcp.html (the PC Panel
homepage). Notification of acceptance will be made in February, 2004.
