Meeting Description:

The Sixth International Conference on Late Modern English: Internal and
External Factors in Linguistic Stability and Language Change 

Uppsala University will host the Sixth International Conference on Late Modern
English (LMEC 6) on August 17-19, 2017. The previous host venues of LMEC have
been Edinburgh (2001), Vigo (2004), Leiden (2007), Sheffield (2010), and
Bergamo (2013).

The theme of LMEC 6 is ''Internal and External Factors in Linguistic Stability
and Language Change''. The Call for Papers will be out in late spring 2016. We
welcome proposals for papers that explore Late Modern English and include a
discussion of underlying factors that can be hypothesized as contributing to
the stability or change observed in the data. Such factors may be
language-internal or language-external. Papers can be either full papers (20
minutes, plus time for discussion) or work-in-progress papers (10 minutes,
plus time for discussion). Proposals for workshops and software demonstrations
are also welcome. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee. Information on
travel, accommodation, and the conference website will be provided with the
Call for Papers. 

We look forward to seeing you in Uppsala!

2nd Call for Papers: 

The deadline for submitting abstracts for general session papers and proposals
for workshops at LMEC 6 has been extended. New deadline: 31 October 2016. As
announced earlier, the conference will take place in Uppsala on 17-19 August
2017.

Abstracts should be sent as e-mail attachments to the conference e-mail
address lmec6 at engelska.uu.se. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words (exclusive
of references) and should clearly state research questions, method, data, and
(expected) results. Abstracts should be submitted as Word documents. If your
abstract contains special characters, please also send a .pdf version.

Contributions that shed light on the theme of the conference, i.e. “Internal
and External Factors in Linguistic Stability and Language Change”, are
particularly welcome, but we also invite papers on other aspects of Late
Modern English. Notification of acceptance of abstracts will be sent out by 15
December 2016.

For detailed information on how to submit abstracts and proposals, please see
the conference website: http://www.engelska.uu.se/research/lmec6/
