Meeting Description:

NWAV is the leading conference in language variation and change. The theme of
the 2017 meeting is Progress.

Wisconsin had, up until recently, a reputation for being a hotbed of
progressive ideas, and the concept of progress is appropriate for language
variation and change in the state. While the direction of language variation
and change cannot be predicted or considered to constitute progress per se,
the field of linguistics generally and language variation and change
specifically have made strides forward. Borrowing the idea from Robert La
Follette, the theme of “Progress” was selected for 2017 because it can be both
a call for progress, both in terms of how far we’ve come looking behind us and
of the future directions in which we want to see the field move forward.

The plenary speakers feature researchers who seek to further our understanding
of the connection between past and future changes in language.
