Studies in the History of the English Language Conference

Year of Funding: 

The history of the English language is the story of the English language in the last 1500 years; its scholarship focuses on the changing sounds, structure, and use of the language, and draws tools methodologically from linguistics, literary study, cultural study, and data methods. This proposed small conference would bring a number of scholars to UW, involve faculty and grad students from multiple departments, heighten our scholarly standing in crossover research between the humanities and social sciences, and draw together the local research community.
