Meeting Description:

Summer School: Research on computer-mediated communication in linguistics (RCMCL), 17-23 June 2012, Ascona, Switzerland

This international summer school addresses methodological issues on computer-mediated communication in connection with language use. The school caters to advanced MA and PhD students already working on CMC topics. Its aims are as follows:

1) To discuss cutting edge theoretical literature on methodologies in CMC/CMD (there will be a reading list).
2) To provide students with a set of tools to aid them in the preparation and analysis of CMC data.
3) To give students a chance to introduce their own research projects and discuss methodological challenges (with both other students and staff).

A reading list with central theoretical literature will be provided closer to the time. Teaching methods will be a combination of input presentations, hands-on workshops and feedback sessions.

Our teachers are:
Daniel Alcón, University of Freiburg
Jannis Androutsopoulos, University of Hamburg
Michael Beisswenger, University of Dortmund
Brook Bolander, University of Basel
Andreas H. Jucker, University of Zurich
Miriam A. Locher, University of Basel
Annette Markham, University of Aarhus

Location: A beautiful hotel in Ascona at the Lago Maggiore in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland

Registration: Please contact Brook.Bolanderunibas.ch

Deadline/ Fees: CHF 500 if paid by February 1, 2012; CHF 600 if paid by 15 April 2012. The fees include accommodation, food and tuition.

The summer school is organised by members of the Doctoral Program in Linguistics of the University of Basel: Miriam Locher and Brook Bolander.
