The Joseph Greenberg Award 2017: REMINDER

Apologies for repeat or cross-postings. This serves as a reminder for the
15 January 2017 deadline (and a correction on accidentally omitted
Greenberg 2013 Award winner Eva van Lier)


 The Association for Linguistic Typology's Joseph Greenberg Award
recognizes and honors the best piece of typological research embodied in a
doctoral dissertation or equivalent in 2015-2016. Theses are eligible if
they were accepted by a university between 1 January 20015 and 31 December
2016 (i.e. passed or defended or accepted, and not just submitted). The
award will consist of payment of travel, per diem expenses and registration
fee to attend the ALT XII Conference, to be held in Canberra,
Australia, 11-15 December, 2017, and the opportunity to present a synopsis
or element of the prize-winning work as a plenary lecture at that meeting.

The Joseph Greenberg Award was named to remember Joseph Greenberg's
(1915-2001) fundamental contributions to typology and the interest he
showed in encouraging young researchers. Between 1998 and 2006, it was
known as the "ALT Junior Award".

 To be eligible, those submitting their dissertation must be members of the
Association for Linguistic Typology (ALT) at the time of submission. They
are asked to submit their manuscript by email in pdf format, with all
non-standard fonts in Unicode, to the Chair of the Jury, Sonia Cristofaro [
sonia.cristofaro at unipv.it], to arrive no later than 15 January, 2017. If
this proves technically difficult, the candidate is asked to discuss the
problem with the chair. A jury, consisting of about ten ALT members, will
be appointed by ALT's President, appropriate to the work submitted.
