The Philological Society is the oldest learned society in Great Britain devoted to the scholarly study of language and languages, demonstrating its endeavour to promote the study and knowledge of the structure, the affinities, and the history of languages through regular talks, the publication of the Transactions of the Philological Society, and a monograph series. 

To further the engagement with languages and linguistics even more, the Society will host an Early Career Researcher Forum at Wolfson College, Oxford, on 8–9 March 2019. Presentations (oral and poster) by late-stage doctoral students and early career researchers may deal with any topic related to linguistics and philology. Next to oral and poster presentations, there will be two workshops on academic publishing and grant applications.

Call for Papers: 

The Philological Society is the oldest learned society in Great Britain devoted to the scholarly study of language and languages and endeavours to investigate and promote the study and knowledge of the structure, the affinities, and the history of languages. As well as encouraging all aspects of the study of language, PhilSoc has a particular interest in historical and comparative linguistics, and maintains its traditional interest in the structure, development, and varieties of Modern English. 

The Society invites submissions of abstracts for 20-minute oral presentations or poster presentations on any topic of research within the Society’s interests from Early Career Researchers (late-stage doctoral students and post-docs) as well as from individuals conducting linguistic or philological research not ordinarily employed in an academic position or higher education. 

The ECR Forum will take place at Wolfson College, Oxford, on 8–9 March 2019. Next to paper and poster sessions, there will be two workshops on journal and monograph publishing (led by Prof. James Clackson, Cambridge, and
Prof. Susan Fitzmaurice, Sheffield) and on grant applications (led by Prof. Aditi Lahiri, Oxford). After the conclusion of the Research Forum, Prof. Rudolf Wachter (Basel) will give a paper at an ordinary meeting of the Society.
