What are the barriers to collaboration between history and linguistics and why?

Interdisciplinary research has been one of the buzzwords in academic research for a number of years, yet – at least in the humanities - it appears that little actual progress has been made with regard to bringing different disciplines, e. g. social historians and sociolinguists together to jointly tackle methodological, programmatic, and practical problems. This conference seeks to address key problems related to the nature of interdisciplinary research in sociolinguistics and social history. Papers are invited to present and discuss current research problems and findings on:

• Social/linguistic history from below: the shift towards a focus on the language and living conditions of the underpriviledged
• Historians’ view of language, linguists’ view of history: the necessity of an understanding of the other discipline to pursue research in one’s own
• Identity formation and social conflicts: the use of language as a social tool in political and social conflicts
• Communicative spaces: the use and restriction of communication in geographical and imagined spaces
• Historical semantics: the changes in the meaning and significance of words and concepts
• Historical discourse analysis and pragmatics: the changes in ways people speak, act, and communicate
• Corpora, editorial practice, data interpretation, translation: methodological problems associated with investigating social history and historical language(s)

Joint presentations by historians and linguists are particularly encouraged. There will be a number of small bursaries for postgraduates to help with costs.
