Abstract:

What are the points of contact between the study of language and the study
of history? What are the possibilities for collaboration between linguists and
historians, and what prevents it? This volume, the proceedings of an
international conference held at the University of Bristol in April 2009,
presents twenty-two articles by linguists and historians, exploring the
relationship between the fields theoretically, conceptually and in practice.
Contributions focus on a variety of European and American languages, in
historical periods from the Middle Ages to the present day. Key themes at the
intersection of these two disciplines are the standardization and classification
of languages, the social and demographic history of medieval and early
modern Europe, the study of language and history 'from below', and the
function of language in modern politics. The value of interdisciplinary
collaboration is demonstrated in a wide-ranging set of case studies, on topics
including language contact in Northern and Central Europe, the relationship
between peninsular and transatlantic Spanish, and new approaches to the
recent histories of Nicaragua, Luxembourg and Bulgaria. The volume seeks
out the interdependencies between the two fields and asks why exchanges
between linguists and historians remain the exception rather than the rule.
