Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics; Sociolinguistics 

Meeting Description: 

This conference aims to bring together scholars working on any aspect of 
geographical and/or social mobility, linguistic variability and changing 
literacies in modern times. This three-day conference offers a forum for 
researchers working in the fields of (historical) sociolinguistics and social 
(and economic) history who seek to explore the processes and forms of both 
social and geographic mobility, as well as their effects on language variation 
and change and on evolving literacies in various parts of the world. The 
chronological scope of the studies presented at the conference covers the 
period from the introduction of the printing press (c. fifteenth century in 
Europe) to the present day. Both synchronic and diachronic approaches are 
welcome.

The conference is motivated by the increase in new material sources that 
enable access to a broader social scope of informants than has previously 
been possible, e.g. depositions, pauper letters, emigrant letters. These new 
sources have opened up interesting possibilities for the investigation of 
language use in various parts of the world and are often related to socio-
economic and socio-cultural processes of industrialization, urbanization and 
globalization, all of which involve mobility. This conference also offers a 
platform for new theoretical apparatuses and conceptual tools that are 
necessitated by the emergence of new material sources. We hope that this 
conference will bring together scholars studying, not only European contexts, 
but also a wide variety of languages around the world.
