Subject: New book series on Historical Sociolinguistics

The interdisciplinary field of Historical Sociolinguistics seeks to reveal
the impact of language development on society and the role of individuals
and society in the changing forms and usage of language. This book series
is aimed at sociolinguists and social historians who are keen to publish
studies on the social history of languages, the interaction of linguistic
practices and society, and the sociological significance of linguistic
variation with a historical dimension. The purpose of the series is to
provide empirically supported studies that will challenge and advance
current language historiographies, which often continue to present the
history of particular languages as necessarily leading to the creation of
a standard or prestige variety. Of particular interest are topics such as
the following: language myths and language ideology, historical
multilingualism and the formation of nation-states, the sociolinguistics
of minority and regional languages, the rise of urban vernaculars,
immigrants and their languages, the role of prescriptive grammarians, and
the social history of pidgins and creoles.

Book proposals from historians and linguists working on any language in
any period are welcome, in particular those that include a comparative
dimension as well as those with a strong empirical foundation. The
preferred language of publication is English.
All publications will be peer reviewed; the four series editors and
twenty-five members of the
advisory board are all members of the Historical Sociolinguistics Network
(HiSoN) <http://www.hison.ac.uk>.
