Full Title: Methods of Exploring Influence and Interaction in Historical Sociolinguistics 

Date: 15-Jun-2014 - 18-Jun-2014
Location: Jyväskylä, Finland 
Contact Person: Taru Nordlund, Anni Sairio
Meeting Email: taru.nordlund at helsinki.fi; anni.sairio at helsinki.fi

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 15-Jun-2013 

Meeting Description:

Historical sociolinguistics studies the relation of language and society within historical contexts. A historical sociolinguist exploits and applies methods and theories of present-day sociolinguistics, at the same time remodelling and developing them to suit historical written data and questions that concern language resources and their change and variation in time. 

This colloquium aims at bringing together scholars working on historical sociolinguistics, whose research explores the possibilities and limitations of applying perspectives of present-day sociolinguistics or anthropological linguistics into historical research. We invite scholars interested in applying concepts such as interaction, identity, ideology, enregisterment, or indexicality into historical data and context.

Call for Papers:

We welcome a range of languages and historical periods, and especially invite scholars who work with data and discourses directed to the public sphere, for example official and public letters, reports, or announcements, newspaper articles and their source texts, letters to the editor, or advertisements. Possible topics of discussion include, but are not limited to the concept of interaction and its applications in historical sociolinguistics, influence and reception of texts, construction of a writer and a model reader in historical text production, language ideology and enregisterment of linguistic forms in historical contexts.

Please send a 300 word abstract to both Taru Nordlund (taru.nordlund at helsinki.fi) and Anni Sairio (anni.sairio at helsinki.fi) by June 15, 2013.
