Dear Colleagues,


The organizers of the Germanic Linguistics Annual Conference 23 (GLAC), sponsored by the University of Texas at Austin, invite faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars to submit abstracts to the conference which will be held on the UT campus on April 20-23, 2017.  We are able to offer two options for participating in GLAC 23:

- 30-minute paper presentations on research (20 minute talk, 10 minute question period)
- Posters presenting research

Papers and posters may be on any linguistic or philological aspect of any historical or modern Germanic language or dialect, including English (to the Early Modern period) and the extraterritorial varieties. Papers from the full range of linguistic and philological subfields, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, stylistics, metrics, first and second language acquisition, foreign language education, language contact, and language change, as well as differing theoretical perspectives, are welcome. All abstracts will undergo anonymous review.

Abstracts must be submitted electronically in PDF format by January 15th 2017. Abstracts should be a maximum of one single-spaced page in length, and be written in a standard 12-point font.  They should be submitted through EasyAbstracts at

We hope to see you in Austin in April!
