> Title:New Methods in Hispanic Linguistics
> As part of the 2011 HLS at the University of Georgia, we will also be hosting a workshop entitled /New Methods in Hispanic Linguistics /on Thursday, October 6^th . The workshop will be aimed at highlighting new analytical developments in linguistics, including (but not limited to) experimental and quantitative techniques. The papers selected will be grouped according to the area of focus of the research and/or the nature of the methodological innovation employed. Presenters areencouraged to submit proposals that concentrate on providing introductory overviews and brief 'hands-on' tutorials of current methodological tools (e.g., methods for statistical analysis or software for psycholinguistic experimentation) for workshop attendees. As the methodologies utilized in linguistic studies continue to include a broader range of training in quantitative and experimental techniques, we are using this workshop at the 2011 HLS as a means of providing a forum for discussing best practices in the field.Facilities for conducting workshop-style presentations will be available for this workshop.
> All submissions for the conference workshop must be received by May 20, 2011 and should follow the same guidelines as the papers for the general sessions. In submitting an abstract for the conference workshop via EasyAbs, please be sure to indicate that the abstract is intended for the "Special Session".
