Linguistic Field(s): History of Linguistics

Meeting Description:

After the discovery of the New World the Europeans began to establish their
hegemony in a new continent. European expansion, colonisation and
christianization of a large number and variety of Amerindian tribes was
accompanied by the study and recording of the native languages of the
Americas. In the same period, Christian missionary activities escalated in
Asia, especially the Far East, and in Russia, and a little later in Africa.
In the early 19th century, the Pacific became a new 'America' for
missionary linguistics.

This congress aims to outline the state of research done in the field. The
subjects are to some extent limited in time (focusing primarily on the
period 1492-1850) but not in space. This conference aims particularly at
inter-relating grammars written in different languages (Latin, Spanish,
Portuguese, English, French, Dutch, etc.), by missionaries of different
orders (Dominicans, Franciscans, Jesuits, etc.), and in different
continents. Proposals can be submitted on all subfields of missionary
linguistics, such as, metahistoriography, lexicography, phonology,
morphology, translation theory, etc. but we particularly welcome papers on

Proposals for papers can be submitting before: 30 november 2005 to:
Otto Zwartjes or Emilio Ridruejo.
