> 'Perfect Tongues: Language-Planning in the Seventeenth Century': a
> conference to be held at CRASSH, University of Cambridge, July 27th-28th,
> 2005.
> Proposals are invited for contributions to a conference on the theme
> 'Language-Planning in the Seventeenth Century'. The conference is organised
> in association with the AHRB-funded project 'Free-thinking and
> language-planning in late 17th century England', centred on the writings
> and milieu of Francis Lodwick (1619-94). Proposals will be welcomed on any
> aspect of the topic, including: • language-planners (individuals and
> collaborative circles) • language-planning and literature •
> language-planning and religion • language-planning and experimental
> philosophy • universal characters/notational innovation. It is hoped that
> the conference will also address methodological and conceptual questions
> about language-planning in the period, and that discussion will complement
> current work on Francis Lodwick and the members of his circles.
> Please submit proposals of no more than 500 words, along with an indication
> of your preferred speaking time (20 or 40 minutes), to Felicity Henderson
> (fch23 at before Friday May 13th.
