Meeting Description:

The Italian department of Leiden University and the LUCL are happy to announce the next Italian Dialect Meeting (CIDSM + Italian Dialects in Diachrony), which will take place in Leiden on 24-26 May 2012.

The Italian Dialect Meeting aims at bringing together Italian dialectologists from all linguistic subdisciplines working on any aspect of Italian dialectology. Following the tradition established by the Cambridge Italian Dialect Syntax Meeting and the Italian Dialects in Diachrony, we encourage discussion between dialectologists with different views on dialects in the hope of creating an extended platform for the study of dialects which goes beyond the local centre and particular approach.

Our keynote speakers will be:

Birgit Alber (University of Verona)Silvio Cruschina (University of Manchester)Franco Fanciullo (University of Pisa)Carla Marcato (University of Udine)Mair Parry (University of Bristol)Diego Pescarini (University of Padua)Tullio Telmon (University of Turin)
