The conference invites papers addressing questions related to connections between historical linguistics and language revitalization, including but not limited the ones outlined on the welcome page. While the primary focus of the conference is on the comparative part of "historical-comparative linguistics," we also encourage abstracts from other areas of historical linguistics, including topics such as language and dialect contact and sociolinguistic dimensions of the diffusion of linguistic innovations, insofar as these may also pertain to language revitalization.
Anonymous 1-page abstracts (12-point Times New Roman, single spaced, 1" margins) should be submitted in pdf format. References and examples may appear on a second page. Submit to HistLxRevitalization@ucdavis.edu
The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2019 (add to your calendar here). Notification of acceptance will be made by approximately February 28, 2019.
