Februray 1, 2021 update:
The Methods local organizing committee in conjunction with the Methods steering committee has decided to postpone Methods XVII by another year to 2022. Once more, we will aim for the first week of August (Aug. 1 to Aug. 5, 2022).
Given that 2 years will have passed by the time the conference can hopefully take place in summer 2020, we will send out a new series of calls for papers within the usual time frame, starting sometime in late spring/early summer.
Please continue monitoring this website (https://methodsxvii.uni-mainz.de/) for any updates.
Thanks to everyone for their continued support in these difficult times, and please stay safe & healthy!
The theme for Methods XVII is (Dia)Lects in the 21st Century.
