New Ways of Analyzing Variation (NWAV) 42

Conference URL: http://www.linguistics.pitt.edu/nwav42

In addition to bridging rivers, runs, highways, and hollows, Pittsburgh also bridges the past and the present, from the industrial expansion in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to the economic collapse thirty years ago, and finally to a mostly successful transition to industries of education, health care, and high technology.

We therefore encourage papers for this conference that make these connections explicit - Bridging the Past and the Present.

Some general questions that might be addressed are these: How are the pasts of the communities we study related to the present? What disruptions in modern society might challenge the Uniformitarian Principle? How do the new ways of analyzing variation, and the the new empirical findings they bring to light, allow us to rethink past findings and theories?

Proposals for papers and posters in the form of abstracts of 350 words or less exclusive of title and references (there may be an additional page for references) must be submitted through the web portal between April 15, 2013 and May 31, 2013 11:59pm Eastern Time.

See conference website for additional details.

NOTE: For presentation length, choose “short presentation”. If you have already submitted as long presentation your abstract will still be reviewed.
