Meeting Description:

The Sixth International Conference on Late Modern English: Internal and External Factors in Linguistic Stability and Language Change

Uppsala University will host the Sixth International Conference on Late Modern English (LMEC 6) on August 17-19, 2017. The previous host venues of LMEC have been Edinburgh (2001), Vigo (2004), Leiden (2007), Sheffield (2010), and Bergamo (2013).

The theme of LMEC 6 is ''Internal and External Factors in Linguistic Stability and Language Change''. The Call for Papers will be out in late spring 2016. We welcome proposals for papers that explore Late Modern English and include a discussion of underlying factors that can be hypothesized as contributing to the stability or change observed in the data. Such factors may be language-internal or language-external. Papers can be either full papers (20 minutes, plus time for discussion) or work-in-progress papers (10 minutes, plus time for discussion). Proposals for workshops and software demonstrations are also welcome. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee. Information on travel, accommodation, and the conference website will be provided with the Call for Papers.

We look forward to seeing you in Uppsala!
