CALL. 31.03.2021: Proto-Indo-European Reconstruction: Problems, possibilities... - Online
At (not quite) the beginning of a new decade, this conference aims to re-energise discussions surrounding the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European (PIE), the common ancestor of the Indo-European (IE) language family. We invite papers that tackle head-on the familiar challenges one faces in attempting linguistic reconstruction, and explain how we can overcome them with perhaps unfamiliar approaches.

FECHA CONGRESO/CONGRESS DATE/DATA CONGRESSO: 01-02/10/2021
ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Krishnan Ram-Prasad; Edoardo Chiattelli
We invite papers on any aspect of PIE reconstruction, including—but not limited to—phonological, morphological and syntactic elements. Presentations can span from more data-focused analyses to broader, theoretical questions that push the boundaries of the methodologies we have employed so far. This broad spectrum of topics will allow different areas of research to be included, while maintaining a focus on the central importance of linguistic reconstruction in IE studies.
Papers will be 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion (30 mins total).
If you wish to present something at this conference, please submit an abstract of up to 500 words, (not including bibliography) in PDF to email@example.com. You will receive a response with a survey to complete; it is compulsory that you fill in this information.
Your abstract should also include your name, email and institutional affiliation (if any). We will aim to notify you of our decision within a month of the deadline.
