Call for Papers:

The conference welcomes submissions for roundtables, panels, individual
presentations, and workshops on themes addressed by researchers working in
historical sociolinguistics. We take a broad view of the field that includes
the reconstruction of linguistic variation and change, the ideological
analysis of linguistic history, the cultural and social history of languages,
the relation between language and literary history, and the analysis or
collation of linguistic corpora of various languages and historical periods.
Scholars working with or on language within disciplines and theoretical
frameworks other than those typically associated with sociolinguistics-such as
linguistic anthropology, literary analysis, cultural studies or history-are
encouraged to submit proposals.

Individual paper proposals should be 250 words in length, and should include a
brief (50-word) bio of the submitter. 

Panel and roundtable submissions should include 3 to 4 participants. Panel and
roundtable proposals should be 500 words total in length and include a
description of the session as well as brief descriptions of each paper and
short bios (an additional 50 words) for each participant. 

The deadline for abstracts is 1 November 2016. Please upload proposals at
http://hison2017.info/submissions.html. For questions, please contact the
conference organizers at hison2017 at gmail.com.
