Meeting Description:

The theme of the conference will be Methods Past and Current.

The choice of the conference's theme stems from the widely shared view 
that methods of analysis involve at least the following related questions:
- How do methods of investigation take into account the data under study?
- In what ways do linguistic premises, perspectives, and models shape the
methods to use?
- Which methods and models, developed in such disciplines as 
cultural and demographic history, economics, psychology, and textual 
editing enhance linguistic analysis?
- Do current methods depart in significant ways from those typical of
research in the past? 

Call for Papers

The New England Committee invites workshop proposals and abstracts for 
talks or poster sessions that address approaches applicable to one or more 
fields of linguistic analysis. This call for proposals aims at continuing the 
tradition of excellence established in Freiburg, 2008. The workshops at 
ISLE1 had clear themes, almost all the talks offered complementing one 
another. For example, the workshop on Linguistic Methodology included 
approaches to corpora and text: techniques for compilation, quantitative 
analyses, lexical sampling, identifying phrasal units, and framing patterns of 
pragmatic exchange. The group of eight talks for this workshop also 
sparked many questions and ideas for further study across genres, dialects, 
varieties, both current and past. ISLE2 plans to offer a platform for on-going 
explorations in methodology, generated at ISLE1 or elsewhere. While there 
is a preference for workshops on method, ISLE2 also welcomes excellent 
proposals on other themes.

The Organizing Committee and the Executive Board of ISLE suggest the 
following format in drafting a proposal: it should include:

(a) A 2-page exposition of the theme(s) that the workshop will address, 
including where appropriate, reference to specific corpora or texts for 
(b) A 1-page bibliography;
(c) An estimate of the likely number of talks that the workshop will 
(d) A list of participants and their affiliations (if already known);
(e) List of equipment needed for presentation.
(f) Length of papers (up to twenty minutes plus  ten minutes for discussion),
and length of the workshop (up to three hours and a half to four hours. 
There may be a coffee break or even a lunch break.)

In submitting a proposal, please use two attachments (plain or PDF format). 
One attachment should contain only the proposal, the other only the author 
and title of the proposal.

Talks and Poster Sessions for ISLE2:

The New England Committee for ISLE2 invites abstracts for talks and poster
sessions. You are free to choose from several fields of English language 
study, but the thesis of your abstract will be most welcome if it centers on 
matters of methodology. Talks will be allotted twenty minutes for 
presentation and ten minutes for discussion. Poster sessions, thirty minutes 
each, provides time for summarizing and discussing your work.

In aiming at some coherence for the talks and poster sessions at the 
meeting, the Committee has a preference for abstracts centered on any of 
the following fields: corpus linguistics, typology, perceptual dialectology, and 
pragmatics. These fields include such topics as regional, social, and cultural 
patterns in dialects, varieties, and Standard English, patterns of exchange 
in written and oral registers, phonological change, and metrics from Old 
English on. The listed fields and topics, though preferred, are flexible 
enough to accommodate excellent abstracts on other issues for inclusion in 
the 2011 schedule of talks and poster sessions.

The New England Committee and the Executive Board of ISLE suggest the 
following format in drafting an abstract. The abstract should include:
(a) a 1-page exposition of the theme for the talk or poster session.
(b) a brief, supportive bibliography;
(c) a list of equipment needed for presentation .

Submission of Proposals for Workshops or Abstracts for Talks and Poster 

In submitting a proposal or abstract, please use two attachments (plain or 
PDF format). One attachment should contain only the proposal or abstract, 
the other only the author and title of the proposal or abstract.
