Meeting Description:

Second International Conference on
The English Language in the Late Modern Period 1700-1900
University of Vigo, 25-27 Nov 2004
Call for papers
The University of Vigo, through its Department of English, is
organizing the Second International Conference on the English Language
in the Late Modern Period 1700-1900 (LMEC2), which will take place in
Vigo, 25th-27th November 2004. It is our aim to follow the path
already unfolded by our colleagues at the University of Edinburgh in
2001 by presenting and evaluating ongoing research in the syntax,
lexis, phonology, sociolinguistics, etc. of the period in question.
Since the topic is still very much alive in the minds of everyone
devoted to historical linguistics, we consider it a good idea to
summon the LModE fellowship again in Vigo with several aims to pay
heed to: a) what is the status of the projects we all presented at the
Edinburgh Conference?, b) how many areas of the period are still
unexplored?, c) what projects could be presented to tread on those
relatively new linguistic territories?, etc.
As this constitutes an almost never-ending list of research topics, we
set out this Call for Papers by means of which we invite you to submit
your proposals - papers and/or workshops - to participate in the
Conference. The papers will last twenty minutes with a discussion of
around ten minutes, whereas the workshops will cover either 60 or 90
minutes. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and take up one
page only (including references), and may be submitted in hard copy or
electronically to the e-mail address below, by 20th April 2004. It is
the intention of the Conference organisers to promote the publication
of an edited and peer-reviewed volume to include some of the material
presented at the Conference.
The following guest speakers have already confirmed their attendance:
Prof. Laurel Brinton (British Columbia), Prof. Teresa Fanego (Santiago
de Compostela), Prof. Charles Jones (Edinburgh), Prof. Bernd Kortmann
(Freiburg) and Prof. Merja Kyt� (Uppsala).
More information concerning registration and accommodation forms,
travel arrangements, social programme, venue, etc., will be sent in
due time. The website will also include those contents soon. If you
are interested in attending the Conference do not hesitate to contact
the organisers at the earliest. Abstracts, queries and comments should
be sent to:
