West Meets East

The theme of the 2020 Conference is ''West meets East'', our aim being to celebrate European lexicography from Portugal in the West to Georgia in the East, and world lexicography across the globe from West to East.

ICHLL 2022 embraces a broad range of topics and disciplinary approaches to the history of dictionaries, historical lexicology, historical lexicography and critical and humanistic lexicography (each of which can include present day practice, method, and production). We therefore call for contributions with an emphasis on qualitative scholarship as well as approaches making use of tools from the digital humanities, but papers on any topic within the histories of lexicography and lexicology are also welcomed.


There are slots for both papers and poster presentations. Papers will be 20 minutes in length, followed by a 10-minute discussion. Poster presentations will be staged in a dedicated session. Papers and poster presentations are to be delivered in English or in French.

Abstracts (max. 500 words in length) should be submitted electronically using the online platform: The information form should include the author’s name and institutional affiliation, the title of the paper and a statement as to whether the proposal is intended for oral presentation or for a poster. The abstract may be uploaded using the platform and should not contain any identifying elements. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 14 January 2022.
