Meeting Description:

Greek and Latin from an Indo-European Perspective 2 is a conference for young researchers with an interest in diachronic linguistics and the Classical languages.

The Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Arts and Ideas at the University of Oslo will host the conference Greek and Latin from an Indo-European Perspective, July 5-6 (and, depending on the number of contributions, also July 7), 2007. The conference is a sequel to the very successful 2005 conference in Cambridge, UK.

Submissions are invited for papers that demonstrate how linguistic comparison can cast new light on all aspects of the Greek and Latin languages and, conversely, how the study of Greek and Latin continues to play a key role in the refinement of the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European and in diachronic linguistics in general. We also welcome papers that discuss aspects of the PIE inheritance in Greek and Latin from the viewpoint of general linguistics.

Those wishing to offer a paper are kindly requested to submit a one-page abstract to gliep-osloifikk.uio.no. The talk should last 20 minutes and will be followed by 10 minutes of discussion. Abstracts should arrive no later than the 15th of April. Notification of acceptance will be given within the 1st of May. The conference is aimed at graduate students, PhDs and other researchers in the early stages of their academic career, and preference will be given to such speakers. There is no registration fee.

Keynote Speakers:

Pierluigi Cuzzolin (University of Bergamo)

Andrew Garrett (University of California at Berkeley)
