Prof. Bridget Drinka of the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) directed the planning and proceedings of the 23rd International Conference on Historical Linguistics (ICHL), which took place in San Antonio from July 31 – August 3, 2017.

Part of this planning included the video recording of numerous special panels, plenaries, and keynotes which formed the thematic core of the conference this year.
