From October 25th to October 26th 2019, the workshop "Multimethodological approaches to synchronic and diachronic variation" will take place at the University of Potsdam, organized by Project A02 of the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1287.
The workshop will bring together researchers who share a common interest in studying synchronic and/or diachronic variation using a combination of different methods. The workshop's aim is to provide a forum for a fruitful exchange of ideas and experiences using multi-methodological approaches, for critical discussion, and for the development of future research directions.
When: October 25-26, 2019.
The detailed programme is available here.
Where: University of Potsdam, Campus Am Neuen Palais, Haus 9, R. 1.03
