The Peterborough Chronicle Panel
(ICEHL 13, Vienna, August 23-28, 2004)
The Peterborough Chronicle Panel is concerned with a variety of
linguistic and other approaches to the mid-twelfth-century manuscript
'E' of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, better known as the 'Peterborough
Chronicle' (PC). The panel will be organized in connection with the 13th
International Conference on English Historical Linguistics at the
University of Vienna next August.
CALL FOR PAPERS
The PC is an outstanding example of very early Middle English and as
such known to practically everyone teaching the history of English. It
continues to be a valuable source of data for many historical linguists
and philologists, especially those interested in the transition from Old
to Middle English. Its linguistic structures and phenomena on the
phonological, morphological, syntactic, lexical, orthographic, and
discourse level have not ceased to attract the attention of historical
linguists. We believe it is now time for a conference workshop dedicated
solely to this manuscript, its language and its historical embedding.
The objective of the panel is to bring together scholars working on
various aspects of the PC and inform the audience about current issues
in their work.
We invite 20-minute papers dealing with any aspect of the language or
history of the Peterborough Chronicle, with emphasis on the
post-Conquest entries. The perspective may be either research-oriented
or reflect the use of the PC as teaching material at university level.
Linguistic papers with focus on other aspects than syntax are
The deadline for abstracts is 15th January, 2004. Please e-mail a
300-word abstract to the panel organizers as plain text in the body of
the message. More information is available at

Notification of acceptance will be made in February, 2004.
