Dear all,

Kay Day: A Symposium in Honour of Professor Christian Kay will be held in the Kelvin Hall at the University of Glasgow on 30 June 2017.

Registration for the event is now open at https://kay-day.eventbrite.co.uk
Professor Christian Kay (1940-2016) enriched English Language and Linguistics at the University of Glasgow for 47 years, and leaves us a tremendous intellectual legacy – not only in the form of the one-of-a-kind Historical Thesaurus of English, which she saw completed in 2009, but also in a variety of other subjects from corpus linguistics to colour studies. This one-day symposium celebrates Christian's life and work with wide-ranging talks on the meaning and history of the English language from fourteen international speakers. Our aim is to honour Christian's enthusiastic involvement in so many fields by hosting papers by a selection of her friends and colleagues who share that enthusiasm.

Some speakers at the event include Kathryn Allan (UCL), Dawn Archer (Manchester Metropolitan), John Corbett (Macau), Philip Durkin (OED), Catherine Mulvenna (Glasgow), Jane Roberts (London), Louise Sylvester (Westminster) and Kate Wild (OED). The day also has an early career session showcasing the work of some UK and international PhD students whose research uses materials created by Christian. Details of the start and end time and venue are listed on the online registration page, and a full programme will follow there shortly.

We hope to see you there!

All best wishes,

Kathryn Allan
