The Historical Sociolinguistics Network (HiSoN), as sponsored by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) as part of its Historical Sociolinguistics Research and Training Program, is proud to announce the fourth edition of the Historical Sociolinguistics Young Researchers Forum (HSYRF) as a series of online keynotes and workshops!

The event is aimed at early career researchers – MA and PhD students, postdocs, and other young (at heart) researchers –, offering a (now digital) mix of keynote lectures and hands-on workshops on various topics relevant to anyone interested in historical sociolinguistics or language history more generally.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 edition will be held as a series of online events, spread out over six Tuesdays and Fridays in April and May 2021.
