Meeting Description:

The American Name Society (ANS), a professional organization devoted to the study of names and their role in society, will hold its annual meeting in conjunction with the Linguistic Society of America, at the Hilton Portland and Executive Tower, January 5-8, 2012. Papers will cover the range of onomastic studies, including personal names, geographical names, literary names, and trade names, broadly construed.

Membership in ANS is a requirement of all presenters, who must also pay the LSA conference registration fee. Presenters will also be expected to pay an additional, incidental registration fee to ANS to cover expenses for any items not provided by LSA.

Additional information about the American Name Society may be accessed at http://www.wtsn.binghamton.edu/ANS/. Complete information regarding the 2012 annual meeting, including all fees, will be available on the ANS website by early fall.

Call for Papers:

Papers in any area of onomastics are appropriate, and a précis of not more than 500 words, along with a 100-word abstract for publication in both the LSA and ANS meeting programs, should be submitted as soon as convenient but no later than August 1, 2011. In the précis, the subject of the proposed paper should be stated in a simple, topic sentence, which is then effectively supported by substantiating information and specific examples. All précis will be reviewed anonymously, and their authors will be notified on or before September 15, 2011.

The précis and accompanying abstract should be attached to an email and sent to ANS1stVPyahoo.com, with 'ANS Proposal' in the subject line.

Papers that are accepted for presentation must be read by their author or co-author. In the event that authors are unable to attend the meeting, papers will not be presented or read by third parties.
