EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS: 1 MARCH 2004

We are pleased to announce the first International Conference on
Historical News Discourse (CHINED), to be held in Florence, Italy, 2-3
September 2004. We invite contributions dealing with news discourse
from the Early Modern English Period (c. 1500-1800). News discourse
will be understood in its widest sense as belonging to the sphere of
public discourse, thus including a variety of speech situations
(political speeches, proclamations, announcements, orders, etc.), as
well as referring to the more specific text genres traditionally
associated with the domain of news, such as ballads, pamphlets,
newspapers, magazines, correspondence, histories, annals, etc. We are

magazines, correspondence, histories, annals, etc. The focus of the
conference will be on:

- Methodologies in collecting and analysing linguistic data from the
above areas, both quantitative and qualitative, diachronic and
synchronic;
- Sociolinguistic, pragmatic factors and the study of early news
discourse;
- Domains of language change (lexical, syntactic, textual); situations
motivating language change (e.g. language contact, translations,
etc.);
- Comparison of different text types; study of one specific text type.
