The 8th Northern Englishes Workshop (NEW8) will be held at Newcastle University on the 27th and 28th March 2018. The workshop focuses on any aspect of English or Scots varieties associated with the linguistic north of the British Isles. Both informal presentations/discussions about ongoing research and conference-style research presentations are appropriate.
NEW8 will include a special session on dialect and discrimination, and we especially welcome papers from researchers working in this area.
We invite submissions for presentations of 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions/discussion. Please submit your papers at the following Easy Chair link by 10th November 2017. Abstracts should be no more than one page of A4, size 12 font (excluding references). It is not necessary to make your abstract anonymous.
