Call for Papers:

Panel on Endangered Languages and Historical Linguistics, ICHL23

We invite graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to submit applications
for participation in a panel on Endangered Languages and Historical
Linguistics, which will take place within the 23rd International Conference of
Historical Linguistics in San Antonio, Texas (July 31-August 4, 2017). 

The students/post-doctoral scholars selected for the panel will present their
own work in the form of a fifteen-minute presentation slot and associated
poster within the context of the panel, will participate in the panel
discussions, and will have the opportunity to interact closely with the other
panel participants throughout the day. The six student/post-doctoral
participants will receive funding for all conference-related expenses,
including travel, registration, lodging, and per diem for the duration of the
ICHL meeting. 

Applications should include an abstract of the poster/presentation, a CV, and
a letter of reference from a faculty supervisor. Abstract submissions should
be a maximum of two pages in length, including references; these should draw
on original research and should emphasize the contributions that the study of
endangered and less-studied languages are making to the field of historical
linguistics. Priority in the selection process will be given to applicants who
are themselves native speakers of endangered languages.

Applications should be submitted by email to ichl23 at utsa.edu; please include
‘Endangered Languages and Historical Linguistics Application’ in the subject
line. Abstracts submitted to this panel but not accepted for it will be
automatically considered as a paper for inclusion in the general session. 

Important Dates:

Deadline for submission:  December 1, 2016.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent by February 15, 2017.
Conference registration opens December 1, 2016.
