Call for Papers:

20th Frisian Philologists’ Conference
Wednesday – Friday, 10- 12 December 2014

Each day will start with a plenary session, followed by parallel sessions. An evening session on education will take place on Thursday. The following research areas will be focused on:

1. Old Frisian
2. Linguistics
3. Literature
4. Lexicography
5. Linguistic sociology
6. History of Friesland/Cultural studies

The field of research is Frisian, including the dialects of Friesland, in all its phases and Frisian in Germany (North and East Friesland). Papers offering a relevant comparative perspective are also warmly welcomed.

The conference committee invites interested parties to submit proposals for presentations during the parallel sessions by sending in an abstract (of roughly 300 words in length). Lecturers who want to have their lecture placed in a specific research area should mention this at submission. Each presentation will last thirty minutes (20 minutes for the lecture itself followed by 10 minutes for discussion). After the deadline (see below) a choice will be made from the proposals received. Lecturers can offer their paper for the conference proceedings, Philologia Frisica anno 2014, which will be edited by the conference committee.

Please submit abstracts by email to: jspoelstrafryske-akademy.nl.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 September. You’ll be notified before 1 October whether your abstract is accepted.

The conference location is not sure yet and will be made known as soon as possible. The conference fee is Euros 100 to cover the entire conference, or Euros 40 per day (including conference documentation, coffee/tea, and lunch). Conference costs will be waived for participants on the day they present their paper. Students will be admitted free of charge. A conference dinner (Costs: Euros 30) will be held on Wednesday 10 December.
