Etymology and the European Lexicon
Roots of Europe
University of Copenhagen, Denmark
17 September – 22 September 2012
The 14th Congress (Fachtagung) of the Indogermanische Gesellschaft / Society for Indo-European Studies / Société des Études Indo-Européennes is dedicated to the theme of ‘Etymology and the European Lexicon’.
Further information, including registration forms and information regarding travel and accommodation, will be posted on the website of Roots of Europe (rootsofeurope.ku.dk) in due time.
Call for Papers:
Priority will be given to submissions which raise issues of general relevance to Indo-European studies, rather than dealing with isolated problems within individual branches; however, all submissions relating to this general theme are welcome.
Possible subjects or subthemes could include the subgrouping of the Indo-European languages (e.g. NW Indo-European, Balkan Indo-European, the Centum-Satem division, Italo-Celtic, Balto-Slavic), the European lexicon as evidence for when and how Europe became Indo-Europeanized (e.g. semantic 'packages', Wörter und Sachen, culture-words), issues relating to pre-Indo-European substratum languages, or to conditions in other European language families (Vasconic, Tyrrhenian, Uralic, Altaic, Semitic etc.) that may shed new light on Indo-European or on the relations between Indo-European and these languages.
There will be no keynote speakers or parallel sessions; all submissions will be given equal consideration, but slots are limited.
Authors wishing to have a paper considered for the congress should submit an abstract of no more than 1,000 words (not including references) to rootsofeuropehum.ku.dk
The closing date for submission of abstracts is the 20 February 2012. Accepted papers must not be published before the time of the conference.
Inquiries should be directed to the secretaries at Roots of Europe: Janus Bahs Jacquet (jacquethum.ku.dk) and Tobias Mosbæk Søborg (tmshum.ku.dk).
