Going Romance is the European conference series that focuses on Romance languages from the perspective of current linguistic theorising. In the quarter of a century of its existence, it has developed into the major European discussion forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages. Going Romance 2022 will be hosted by the Centre de Lingüística Teòrica at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Besides de main session, there will be a workshop on “Superlatives and definiteness” organised by Lucia M. Tovena.

Call for papers

We encourage submissions of papers at the intersection of linguistic theory and the Romance languages. Beyond this general tenet, there are no specific requirements as to the topic, the subdiscipline, the approach or the methodology, for the main session.

Submissions are limited to a maximum of one individual and one joint abstract per author for the entire conference; it will not be possible to introduce changes in authorship after submission. Please indicate in your submission whether your abstract should be considered for the main session or for the workshop, and (for main session submissions) whether your paper is to be considered for oral or poster presentation.
