The Historical Sociolinguistics Network (HiSoN) was founded at the
University of Bristol in 2005 and is open to anyone with an interest in
the field. We are a loose organisation without a formal membership
structure but we meet regularly at dedicated conferences, workshops, and
This website is our electronic home and serves as a platform to make announcements, document past and future activities, and present some of our members. For further information on the HiSoN network, contact Nils Langer (Nils.Langer@uni-flensburg.de) or Markus Schiegg (firstname.lastname@example.org). Contact our webmaster Julian Mader (email@example.com) for improvements of the website.
We are interested in any part of the relation of language and people in the past, in particular as regards the function and use of language in individuals and societies.
