Session 'Migration and Language in Early-Modern Europe', European Social Science
History Conference (ESSHC), Lisbon, 27 February - 1 March 2008.

working on issues concerning language in the context of migration and

Migration and Language in Early-Modern Europe, ESSHC
Proposals for papers are invited for a session on ''Migration and Language in
Early-Modern Europe'', as part of the Ethnicity and Migration Network, at the
European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC) in Lisbon, 27 February - 1
March 2008 (see http://www.iisg.nl/esshc).
Migration is relevant to the diachronic study of the European languages in that
it is one of the dimensions of the socio-historical space in which various
dialects and languages developed and influenced each other (cf. e.g. the project
''Variation and standardisation: the influence of language contact on the
emerging Dutch standard language (1400-1700)'', see
At the same time, linguistic factors may have played a role in migratory
patterns on various scales.
The aim of the session is to bring together researchers working on issues
concerning language in the context of migration and urbanization in early-modern
Europe, and to bring about an inter-disciplinary exchange between social
historians and linguists.
Please send proposals for contributions (400 words max.) to Adrienne Bruyn
a.bruyn let.ru.nl by 25 March 2007 at the latest.
