DescripciónNARNiHS welcomes abstracts in all areas of historical sociolinguistics, which is understood as the application/development of sociolinguistic theories, models, and methods for the study of historical language variation and change over time, or more broadly, the study of the interaction of language and society in historical periods and from historical perspectives. Thus, a wide range of linguistic areas, subdisciplines, and methodologies easily find their place within the field, and we encourage submission of abstracts that reflect this broad scope.

Abstracts will be accepted for both 20-minute papers and posters. Please note that, at the NARNiHS annual meeting, poster presentations are an integral part of the conference (not second-tier presentations). Abstracts will be assigned a paper or a poster presentation based on determinations in the review process about the most effective format for the submission. However, if you prefer that your submission be considered primarily for poster presentation, please specify this in your abstract.

Abstracts should clearly articulate how the research in the presentation advances knowledge in the field of historical sociolinguistics. Authors should be explicit about which theoretical frameworks, methodological protocols, and analytical strategies are being applied or critiqued; and data sources and examples should be sufficiently (if briefly) presented so as to allow reviewers a full understanding of the scope and claims of the research.

General Requirements:
1) Abstracts must be submitted electronically, using the following link: .
2) Authors may submit a maximum of two abstracts: one single-author abstract and one co-authored abstract.
3) Authors may not submit identical abstracts for presentation at the NARNiHS meeting and at the LSA Annual Meeting or one of the other LSA Sister Societies (ADS, ANS, NAAHoLS, SCiL, SPCL, SSILA).
4) Specify in the abstract if you prefer that your submission be considered primarily for a poster presentation.
5) After an abstract has been submitted, no changes of author, title, or wording of the abstract, other than those due to typographical errors, are permitted. If accepted, authors will be contacted for a final version for the abstract booklet.
6) Papers and posters must be delivered as projected in the abstract or represent bona fide developments of the same research.
7) An LCD projector with sound will be available for all paper presentations. If you will need other equipment, please state this in your proposal. If your laptop (or other presentation device) requires a special adapter to connect to a standard projector, please be sure that you bring that adapter with you (we cannot guarantee that adapters will be available on site).
8) Authors are expected to attend the conference and present their own papers and posters.

Abstract Format Guidelines:
1) Abstracts must be submitted in PDF format.
2) Abstracts must fit on one standard 8.5x11 inch page, with margins no smaller than 1 inch and a font style and size no smaller than Times New Roman 12 point. All additional content (visualizations, trees, tables, figures, captions, examples, and references) must fit on a single (1) additional page. No exceptions to these requirements are allowed.
3) Your name should only appear in the online form accompanying your abstract submission. If you identify yourself in any way on the abstract itself (including indirect identification, e.g. "In Bly (1992)...I"), the abstract will be rejected without being evaluated. In addition, be sure to anonymize your PDF document by clicking on "File", then "Properties”, removing your name if it appears in the "Author" line of the “Description” tab, and re-saving before submitting it. Please be aware that abstract file names are not automatically anonymized; do not use your name (e.g. Smith_Abstract2019.pdf) when saving your abstract in PDF format, but rather, use non-identifying information (e.g. HistSoc4Lyfe_NARNiHS2020.pdf).
