Corpus Linguistics Summer School at the University of Birmingham 2022

The Corpus Linguistics Summer School is open to undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral students, as well as researchers who want to improve their skills to apply corpus methods in their own research.

This year it will take place entirely online and consist of synchronous and asynchronous elements. The synchronous part will take place from 4 to 7 July 2022. Prior to the synchronous part, participants will be expected to complete the asynchronous part consisting of self-study video lectures and hands-on materials. Please note that the synchronous sessions will not be recorded.

Our summer school aims to equip participants with critical expertise in both the theory and practice of corpus-based linguistic research. Building on the strengths of our Centre for Corpus Research (CCR) and our invited speakers, we strive to offer participants a learning experience that is both beneficial for their own specific research needs and enriching to them as language researchers at large. There will also be the opportunity for participants to present their own work and receive feedback from our expert team. Given the specialised nature of the programme, a basic understanding of corpus linguistics is highly recommended.
