The Society for the Study of the History of the English Language
(SSHEL) announces the following Call for Papers for the International
Congress on Medieval Studies (Kalamazoo, MI), 2009: "Medieval English
and Creole Studies."

"Medieval English and Creole Studies" will consider an issue that was
considered highly controversial at the New Chaucer Society meeting
two years ago. How is our understanding of Medieval English enriched
by considering the theories, paradigms, and other critical approaches
developed within Creole Studies (language, history and culture)? We
hope to take this topic further by accepting papers that deal with
material that goes beyond Chaucer and his contemporaries. We would
especially welcome papers that consider the subject from such
perspectives as multilingualism, oral theory, and socio-economics.

Please sumit abstracts no later that September 15, 2008 to
