The 22nd International Conference on English Historical Linguistics will take place in person at the University of Sheffield in July 2023.

The Diamond at dusk

Taking place between Monday 3 July and Thursday 6 July 2023, ICEHL-22 will mark a return to Sheffield, which first hosted the conference's third instalment in 1983. All sessions and plenaries, including coffees and lunches, will take place in the same location, at the multi-theatre, centrally located Diamond building.

There will be three plenary speakers, two of which are now confirmed:

Dr Mel Evans (University of Leeds)

Dr Malk Faulkner (Trinity College Dublin)

Further details, including registration fees/info, information on travel and accommodation, as well as suggestions for extracurricular activities, will be made available in due course.

The first call is for proposals for panels or workshops via <EASYABS>. Proposers of organised sessions should submit a description of the theme, as well as any envisaged individual papers/contributions (without names of individuals). All areas of study relevant to the linguistic history of English will be considered, including manuscript studies, literary linguistics and themes to do with the development of theories and methods in English historical linguistics. Maximum word count: 500 words. The deadline for panel/workshop proposals is Sunday 9 October 2022.

Shortly following in October 2022, information on the accepted panels/workshops will accompany the general call for abstracts. Submitters of abstracts will be asked to specify if they wish their paper to be considered for one of the panels/workshops. Papers not accepted for their specified panel/workshop will be considered for the general programme. The deadline for this general call will be mid-January 2023.
