Subordination and Insubordination in Post-Classical Greek: Syntax, Context and Complexity

Subordination and Insubordination in Post-Classical Greek
Syntax, Context and Complexity

Ghent University, May 12-14, 2022

Dear list members,

We are glad to invite you to participate in our conference “Subordination and Insubordination in Post-Classical Greek. Syntax, Context and Complexity”.

The noted absence of grammars dealing exclusively with the syntax of Post-Classical Greek (III BCE – VI CE) has recently generated an increasing amount of studies dealing with the Post-Classical syntax of subordination and insubordination. The main aim of this conference is therefore to investigate the syntax of subordination from different perspectives in an expanding research area of the Greek language, and, at the same time, to stimulate debate on the relationship between subordination, linguistic complexity and sociolinguistic characterization in historical corpora (of both literary and non-literary texts). Keynote speakers are Brian Joseph, Alessandro Vatri and Marja Vierros.

Call for Papers:

We welcome both synchronic and diachronic contributions dealing with the strategies of subordination and insubordination in Post-Classical Greek. We also encourage the application of different theoretical approaches to (in)subordinate clauses and the use of computational and digital tools for linguistic analysis.

A full version of the Cfp can be found at https://www.postclassicalsubordination.ugent.be/ .

Interested scholars are invited to submit English abstracts (600 words max.) for 20 minute papers to postclassicalsubordinationugent.be by October 10, 2021. Notification of acceptance will be given by the 10th of November.

We look forward to welcoming you in Ghent,
Klaas Bentein, Eleonora Cattafi & Ezra la Roi
