Meeting Description:

Corpus Linguistics beyond Boundaries: Interdisciplinary Applications
A one-day Symposium

Friday 10 July 2015, University of Nottingham (UK)

Plenary speaker: Paul Baker (Lancaster University)

Recent research in corpus linguistics is pushing the boundaries of the discipline towards more and more interdisciplinary applications. Although used originally by linguists alone, CL methods are now being embraced by researchers working in an ever-widening range of academic disciplines. Spurred on by growing recognition of the utility of such methods for providing unprecedented and unpredictable insights into how language is used in the real world, students and established scholars alike are now adopting CL approaches to answer questions in an array of subjects, including the social sciences, literary studies, education, psychology, translation studies, the health sciences, and many, many more.

The ''Corpus Linguistics beyond Boundaries'' symposium will follow the ''University of Nottingham Summer School in Corpus Linguistics: Tools and Applications'' (7-9 July 2015, see Attendees are encouraged but not obliged to attend both events.

Organising committee: Gavin Brookes, Lorenzo Mastropierro, Viola Wiegand
