From the 12th to the 15th of July 2016, the International Conference on Historical Lexicography and Lexicology (ICHLL) will take place in Bloomington, Indiana. The deadline for 500 word English-language abstracts is February 1, 2016.
In particular, the conference welcomes papers addressing problems associated with dates and dating and periods and periodization. In addition, the conference solicits abstracts that concern how chronology is re-conceived in the era of digitally-driven lexical research.
There are four plenaries planned for this event:
- Fred R. Shapiro (Yale University, dates and dating)
- Anne Curzan (University of Michigan, periods and periodizing)
- Mira Podhajecka (University of Opole, theories of history)
- Sarah Ogilvie (Stanford University, digital chronologies)
