Language structure: variation and change


Sociolinguistics Circle 5 April, 2019 – Call for papers

We are happy to announce the sixth edition of the Sociolinguistics Circle conference which will be held at Utrecht University, on 5 April 2019.

The Sociolinguistics Circle consists of a group of sociolinguists representing most – if not all – universities in the Netherlands and Flanders. Its main objective is to organize an annual one-day conference that aims at bringing together students and researchers of language variation, sociolinguistics and social dynamics of language with a connection to the Low Countries. Particular emphasis is put on participation by students and other young researchers: the conference is open to researchers of all levels.
Isabelle Leglise (CNRS, Paris) will be our key note speaker.

Call for Papers
We now welcome abstracts for paper and poster presentations. Abstracts should deal with topics in variationist linguistics, sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, dialectology, or related disciplines. Abstracts of no more than 300 words (excluding references) should be submitted in English or Dutch to before 17 December 2018. Please mention in the mail whether you have a preference for paper or a poster presentation. We aim to decide on acceptance before 20 February 2019.
