Meeting Description:

The School of English at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland, is pleased to announce the 11th Medieval English Studies Symposium.

The Symposium has continuously served as a platform for discussion to researchers interested in various aspects of the history of the English language. It hosts sessions devoted to the history of the English language in what is broadly understood as the Middle Ages, dealing with a variety of linguistic sub-fields encouraging formal, functional or sociolinguistic perspectives.

This year there are two plenary lectures, at least two parallel sessions with section meetings planned.

The working language of the conference is English.

Paper Proposals:

We wish to especially encourage contributions centred around the theme of standardisation, however, submissions pertaining to all areas of historical linguistic research within the broadly understood medieval English period are also welcome.


Abstracts of max. 500 words in the .odt, .txt or .doc (Word for Windows) format should be submitted by 30 May 2012 online via EasyAbs available at http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/mess2012 or via our web page at http://ifa.amu.edu.pl/~mess/MESS2012/abstracts.html .

Unfortunately, we may host only a limited number of section papers, thus abstracts will be reviewed and selected by the organising committee. Authors will be notified of acceptance by 15 July 2012.

Participants without papers are also cordially welcome.

Abstract submissions: 30 May 2012
Notification of acceptance: by 15 July 2012
