Coming up: Corpus Linguistics 2017, Birmingham

Just a quick update: the registration for the CL2017 conference at the University of Birmingham (24-28 July) is closing very soon on 30 July.  [I shall admit openly that I’m part of the organising committee and therefore advertising it – but genuinely think this conference will be a good one!] This conference series is one of the biggest corpus linguistics events in Europe that runs bi-annually and has been hosted at the universities of Birmingham, Lancaster and Liverpool. The CL2017 programme contains streams related to a variety of CL applications. Of particular interest will be the plenary papers by Susan Conrad, Andrew Hardie, Susan Hunston, Christian Mair, Dan McIntyre and Mike Scott.

Author:

I am a research fellow on the CLiC Dickens project at the Centre for Corpus Research, University of Birmingham. My research interests focus on the use of corpus linguistic tools to identify meaning in texts. In the CLiC Dickens project we develop and use methods to study the language of literary texts, particularly in Dickens’s and other 19th century fiction. My PhD research seeks to understand connections in discourse through a corpus linguistic approach. Specifically, I study how the concept of surveillance is represented in different types of texts. This blog reflects my personal opinions and not those of my employers.
