Workshop Maps & Grammar

The Workshop Maps & Grammar will be held on Wednesday 17 September 2014 and Thursday 18 September 2014 at the Meertens Institute in Amsterdam. The workshop deals with geographic linguistics, putting language and dialect information on maps, and aims to bring together researchers with a background in linguistics and researchers with a background in mapping. We invite the submission of abstracts on the relation between linguistics and geographical maps. The submission deadline is 1 July 2014 1 June 2014. For more information, see the call for abstracts
