Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce that the 7th Budapest Uralic Workshop will be held in Budapest, Hungary, February 3-5, 2014.

The workshop is organized by the Department of Finno-Ugric Studies and Historical Linguistics, Research Institute for Linguistics, Hungarian Academy Sciences.

This three-day workshop provides a meeting place for researchers in the areas of Uralic studies to present their research findings in a stimulating and interactive environment. The workshop aims to promote collaborative opportunities between scholars, introduce new perspectives and reflect on current research and practice in various subfields of Uralic linguistics. The focus of this year’s workshop is on multilingual Uralic speakers who, due to their contact with other languages, prompt to innovate their own speech, induce structural change and thus shape the process of language change. Although societal and economic processes also influence the direction and pace of language change and the fate of a minority language and identity, the role of the individual is of utmost importance, especially in maintaining minority languages and identities. 
Keynote Speakers:

Janne Saarikivi (University of Helsinki, Finland)
Anna Fenyvesi (University of Szeged, Hungary)

2nd Call for Papers:

We invite papers from all relevant fields - in particular, sociolinguistics, contactology, typology and historical linguistics - investigating the following topics:

- Individual multilingualism
- The multilingual speaker’s repertoire
- The acquisition and maintenance of the multilingual repertoire
- The linguistic and extra-linguistic factors affecting the multilingual repertoire and language change
- The domains and norms of multilingual language use

MA and PhD students are especially welcome. Those presenting a paper are entitled for a travel subsidy up to 100 euros. 

For each presentation, there will be 30 minutes time followed by 15 minutes for discussion. Posters are also welcome. 

The official language of the workshop is English but papers can also be presented in Russian or Hungarian. Abstracts and hand-outs should be prepared in English. 

Please submit your abstracts in English (max. 500 words) by November 20, 2013, to the email address: 
bum7 at nytud.mta.hu.

The abstracts will be anonymously reviewed by November 30.
