Meeting Description:

The Diachronic Generative Syntax (DiGS) conference is a forum for people to present work on diachronic and historical syntax that is informed by, and informs, generative syntactic theory. The invited speakers for the 22nd instantiation of DiGS, in Konstanz, Germany, are Anne Breitbarth (Ghent), Ashwini Deo (OSU), and Ian Roberts (Cambridge). There will also be a satellite workshop on ''Syntactic change in progress'' (19th May 2021).

2nd Call for Papers:

We invite submissions for oral and poster presentations for the Diachronic Generative Syntax Conference in Konstanz, Germany, May 2021. Submissions should be in the area of historical and diachronic syntax, taking a generative approach; ''generative'' is here understood broadly so as to include frameworks such as LFG and HPSG as well as e.g. Minimalist, cartographic, and/or nanosyntactic approaches.

Abstracts should be no longer than two A4 pages (minimum font size: 12pt), including examples and references.

Please submit via EasyChair:
The deadline is 22 November 2019, 23:59 CET.

Note that there will be a number of travel and accommodation bursaries available to participants who need them.
