General SHEL Information:

The Studies in the History of the English Language Conference (SHEL) series has
become a biennial tradition, giving the field of Historical English Linguistics
both focus and recognition in North America and providing the critical
opportunity for scholars in the field to gather and share their research. SHEL
follows in the tradition of the biennial conferences known as ICEHL
(International Conference on English Historical Linguistics), traditionally
hosted at research centers throughout Europe. We see the two conference series,
one in Europe and one in North America, as complementary in important ways.
