The Historical Sociolinguistics Network (HiSoN), as sponsored by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) as part of its Historical Sociolinguistics Research and Training Program, is proud to announce the second edition of the Historical Sociolinguistics Young Researchers Forum (HSYRF).
This new yearly event is aimed at early career researchers – MA and PhD students, postdocs, and other young (at heart) researchers –, offering a mix of lectures, classes and hands-on workshops on various topics relevant to anyone interested in historical sociolinguistics or language history more generally.
HSYRF comprises two workshops, a masterclass and a keynote lecture (the “Bad Data Lecture”). Participants choose one of the workshops. The masterclass and the keynote lecture are plenary events.
The first edition of the event took place on 2-3 March 2018 at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Brussels, Belgium).
