Meeting Description:

The aim of the symposium is to discuss English historical lexicography paying close attention to the growing number of electronic resources that are currently becoming available in this field, especially in relation to social and geographical varieties of English, ideally up to Late Modern times.

Invited keynote speakers:

- Wendy Anderson, University of Glasgow
- Stefan Dollinger, University of British Columbia
- María F. García-Bermejo Giner, University of Salamanca
- Susan Rennie, independent scholar (Edinburgh).

The event takes place as part of the initiatives organized by the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures of the University of Bergamo as a Dipartimento di Eccellenza 2018-2022 and benefits from research conducted by the organizers in the 2015 PRIN research project Knowledge Dissemination across Media in English: Continuity and change in discourse strategies, ideologies, and epistemologies (prot. 2015TJ8ZAS). We also acknowledge the support of Token: A Journal of English Linguistics.

Organising committee: Marina Dossena (chair), Stefano Rosso and Polina Shvanyukova.

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts for papers on English historical lexicography that pay close attention to the growing number of electronic resources that are currently becoming available in this field. Within this framework, we encourage submissions that focus on social and geographical varieties of English, ideally up to Late Modern times.

Papers will be 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion, and we expect to publish a selection of them, following double-bind peer-review. Please note that we do not envisage parallel sessions.

Abstracts (ca. 400 words excluding references) should be sent as Word files to polina.shvanyukovaunibg.it no later than 15 November 2018. Notifications of acceptance will be issued by 15 December 2018.
