The University of British Columbia is proud to be hosting a Dual Conference, comprised of two international language and linguistics conferences: the 20th Biennial Dictionary Society of North America Meeting (DSNA-20) and the 9th Studies in the History of the English Language Conference (SHEL-9). We are anticipating fruitful synergies, while respecting the traditions of each conference. This combined conference will be hosted by the Department of English & Canadian English Laboratory and will be held on June 5-7th, 2015 at UBC's Vancouver campus, with a pre-conference excursion up Grouse Mountain on June 4th.
Featuring: the H. Rocke Robertson Collection of Dictionaries and Related Works
Conference Theme: Multilingual Approaches*
*In keeping with existing DSNA & SHEL traditions, any and all topics, regardless of theoretical & empirical focus, are most welcome. The conference theme is a recommendation.
