The Joseph Greenberg Award 2019

The Association for Linguistic Typology's *Joseph Greenberg Award* recognizes
and honours the best piece of typological research embodied in a doctoral
dissertation or equivalent in 2017-2018. Theses are eligible if they were
defended by a university between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2018. The
award will consist of payment of travel, per diem expenses and registration
fee to attend the ALT XIII Conference, to be held in Pavia, Italy,
September 4-6, 2019, and to present a synopsis or element of the
prize-winning work as a plenary lecture at that meeting.

The Joseph Greenberg Award was named to remember Joseph Greenberg's
(1915-2001) fundamental contributions to typology and the interest he
showed in encouraging young researchers. Between 1998 and 2006, it was
known as the "ALT Junior Award".

To be eligible, those submitting their dissertation must be members of the
Association for Linguistic Typology (ALT) or must join. They are asked to
submit their manuscript by email in .PDF format, with all non-standard
fonts in Unicode, to the Chair of the Jury. The general deadline for
submission is UTC-12:00* December 15, 2018*. However, as an international
organization, ALT recognizes that different countries have different
timelines and systems for the defense of dissertations, and that this
deadline could exclude some theses that will be completed at the end of
2018. Candidates for the award who will officially defend their
dissertations by December 31, 2018 should contact the award committee chair
well in advance, by December 1, 2018, if they would like to negotiate an
alternate deadline that can be no later than January 15, 2019. Candidates
who are unsure of whether the system for completing dissertations at their
institutions makes them eligible for this round of the award are also
encouraged to contact the award committee chair as soon as possible to
verify their eligibility.

A jury, consisting of about ten ALT members, will be appointed by the award
committee chair, in consultation with ALT's President, appropriate to the
work submitted.

The chair will be Peter Arkadiev (Institute of Slavic Studies of the
Russian Academy of Sciences & Russian State University for the Humanities),
and submissions (in .PDF format) should be sent to this email address:
alpgurev at gmail.com. Queries may also be sent to the same email address.
