22-24 June 2015: Italian Dialect Meeting and CIDSM X

We are happy to announce that the next Italian Dialect Meeting (and CIDSM X) will be held at the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics on June 22-24, 2015.

Italian Dialects

The study of dialects of Italy has increasingly gained importance over the last decades. This meeting wishes to bring together linguists from different theoretical frameworks working on any aspect of the dialects of Italy.
The conference will be complemented by a roundtable on the status of Italian dialectological studies, which will aim at answering the following questions: Where are we headed? What have we achieved, and what still needs to be done?
