NWCL Postgraduate Training Workshop

First call for registration

The North-West Centre for Linguistics is happy to announce its third annual 
Postgraduate Research Training Workshop. The title of the two-day workshop is 
'Researching talk: principles, practice and problems in the collection and 
analysis of spoken language data'. It will be held on 1st-2nd November 2001 
at Edge Hill College, which is just north of Liverpool, England. The workshop 
is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and is organised 
in co-operation with LOT (the Netherlands Graduate School of Linguistics). 
This funding means that registration for the workshop, accommodation and food 
for up to 40 participants will be free; details of the funding are given below.

The workshop will offer postgraduate researchers the chance to meet with other
postgraduates working in similar areas and also with nationally and 
internationally renowned specialists who work on several different aspects of 
the study of spoken language and in a range of social settings. The focus of 
the workshop will be on the processes of collection and analysis of spoken 
language data, and the activities are intended to be of benefit to 
postgraduate research students in the planning, conduct and evaluation of 
their projects. 

Invited speakers include: Michael Hoey (University of Liverpool), Marilyn 
Martin-Jones (University of Wales, Aberystwyth), Mark Sebba (University of 
Lancaster), Dominic Watt/Paul Foulkes (University of York), Ann Williams 
(Goldsmiths, University of London). Speakers will address methodological 
issues in the gathering and interpretation of such data and the resolution of 
problems which can confront researchers. Topics will include techniques for 
the transcribing of spoken language, ethnographic approaches to language 
research, the interpretation of bilingual data, the analysis of conversation, 
phonetic approaches to language research, working with children as informants,
and elicitation techniques in language variation research. 

Postgraduate participants will be invited to present their own research in 
the form of a poster and a session will be set aside for discussion of these. 
The NWCL book-token prize will be awarded to the presenter of the best poster,
as judged by the invited speakers. 

40 ESRC-funded places are available to PhD students at a UK university who 
are in the second, third or fourth year of their PhD study (as of November 
2001). The places will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis, so 
early registration is encouraged. The funding does not cover travel to and 
from the workshop, and we advise participants to apply to their home 
institution for such costs. LOT has agreed to contribute towards the costs of 
participants from LOT institutions - please contact the workshop organisers 
directly for further details. Accommodation will be in a hotel in Liverpool 
city centre and transport will be provided from the hotel to the workshop 
venue.

The final deadline for registration is Friday 5th October, and registration 
will be possible until all the places are taken. The organisers are Jo Arthur 
and Patrick Honeybone. Feel free to contact us if you have any queries. Send 
emails to both of us, please: arthurjedgehill.ac.uk and 
honeybopedgehill.ac.uk. 

To register, send an email to honeybopedgehill.ac.uk with your:
NAME 
EMAIL AND POSTAL ADDRESSES 
INSTITUTIONAL AFFILIATION 
WORKING TITLE OF YOUR PHD PROJECT
YEAR OF STUDY (2ND, 3RD ETC.)

A second call for participation will follow in due course and further details 
of the arrangements and programme will be sent out to those who register. 
They will also be available on the NWCL's website, at 
www.art.man.ac.uk/linguist/reswork.htm.
