The *North American Research Network in Historical Sociolinguistics 
(NARNiHS) *is accepting abstracts for its
*First (!) Annual Meeting*, Saturday, 5 January 2019.

Co-Located with the Linguistic Society of America (LSA) Annual Meeting 
at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel in New York City.

*Deadline for receipt of abstracts:*
*** Monday, 3 September 2018, 11:59 PM US Eastern Time ***
Late abstracts will not be considered.

NARNiHS welcomes papers in all areas of historical sociolinguistics, 
which is understood as the application/development of sociolinguistic 
theories, models, and methods for the study of historical language 
variation and change over time, or more broadly, the study of the 
interaction of language and society in historical periods and from 
historical perspectives. Thus, a wide range of linguistic areas, 
subdisciplines, and methodologies easily find their place within the 
field, and we encourage submission of abstracts that reflect this broad 
**General Requirements:*
1) Abstracts for 20-minute papers must be submitted electronically, 
using the following link: http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/narnihs2019 .
2) Authors may submit a maximum of two abstracts, one single-author 
abstract and one co-authored abstract.
3) Authors are expected to attend the conference and present their own 
papers and posters.
4) After an abstract has been submitted, no changes of author, title, or 
wording of the abstract, other than those due to typographical errors,
are permitted. If accepted, authors will be contacted for a final 
version for the abstract booklet.
5) Papers must be delivered as projected in the abstract or represent 
bona fide developments of the same research.
6) Authors may not submit identical abstracts for presentation at the 
NARNiHS meeting and at the LSA Annual Meeting or one of the other LSA 
Sister Societies (ADS, ANS, NAAHoLS, SCiL, SPCL, SSILA).
7) An LCD projector with sound will be available for all presentations, 
along with a microphone. If you will need other equipment, please state 
this in your proposal. If your laptop (or other presentation device) 
requires a special adapter to connect to a standard projector, please be 
sure that you bring that adapter with you (we cannot guarantee that 
adapters will be available on site).

*Abstract Format Guidelines:*
1) Abstracts must be submitted in PDF format.
2) Abstracts must fit on one standard 8.5x11 inch page, with margins no 
smaller than 1 inch and a font style and size no smaller than Times New 
Roman 12 point. All additional content (visualizations, trees, tables, 
figures, captions, examples, and references) must fit on a single (1) 
additional page. No exceptions to these requirements are allowed.
3) Your name should only appear in the online form accompanying your 
abstract submission. If you identify yourself in any way on the abstract 
itself (including indirect identification, e.g. "In Bly (1992)...I"), 
the abstract will be rejected without being evaluated. In addition, be 
sure to anonymize your PDF document by clicking on "File", then 
"Properties”, removing your name if it appears in the "Author" line of 
the “Description” tab, and re-saving before submitting it. Please be 
aware that abstract file names are not automatically anonymized; do not 
use your name (e.g. Smith_Abstract2019.pdf) when saving your abstract in 
PDF format, but rather, use non-identifying information (e.g.
