What counts as scientific in the History of Linguistics?

Every scholar who does research in the History of the Language Sciences has an idea of what approaches are ‘scientific’, what are ‘pre-scientific’, or even what might be unscientific. In many ways, we associate these beliefs with certain ‘canonical’ works, to which the literature ascribes an exemplary function in relation to works that appeared later. Are these divisions as clear-cut as we often think they are, or perhaps not? We look forward to all contributions that deal with this issue.

In addition, we also cordially invite papers dedicated to any topic in the History of Linguistics.

Presentations should not exceed the maximum duration of 20 minutes (allowing for 10 minutes of discussion). Proposals should be submitted by e-mail (hss2023@utad.pt) no later than 15 march 2023 and should contain the following information:

  • Name
  • Institutional affiliation (if any)
  • email address
  • and abstract (ca. 250 words, written in the language the paper will be presented in).

In addition, proposals for panels should include a short statement (ca. 100-150 words) from the panel organiser(s) giving the rationale for the panel.

Notification of acceptance will be made by 31 March 2023.

Please note that the XXXII. Internationales Kolloquium des “Studienkreis ‘Geschichte der Sprachwissenschaft'” (SGdS) will take place in Vila Real from 7-9 September 2023. Active participation in both Colloquia is cordially invited and will be possible at a discounted price (https://hss2023.pt/venue-info).

In order to benefit from reduced registration fees, we encourage all participants to join the HSS as a member in due time before the colloquium (www.henrysweet.org/join-the-society).
