Host Institution: Ghent University

Dates: 12-Jul-2021 - 16-Jul-2021

Focus: Quantitative and Qualitative research methods in (applied) linguistics, translation or interpreting studies.
Minimum Education Level: MA

The Summer School “Methods in Language Sciences” will take place from 12 to 16 July 2021.

It will be held in accordance with the Corona measures. This means that all classes will probably be mix of online teaching with (reduced) on-campus teaching.

Top quality research requires outstanding methodological skills. That is why the Department of Linguistics and the Department of Translation, Interpreting and Communication of Ghent University will jointly organize a Summer School on “Methods in Language Sciences” in July 2021.

This Summer School is targeted at both junior and senior researchers and offers eight multi-day modules on various topics, ranging from quantitative to qualitative methods and covering NLP, eye-tracking and survey design as well as specific tools such as PRAAT and ELAN. All lecturers are internationally recognized experts with a strong research and teaching background.

Because the modules will partly be held in parallel sessions, participants have to choose one or two modules to follow (see the Programme for details). There is no prerequisite knowledge or experience, except for Module 2 (on Advanced statistical methods with R).

In addition, Jürgen Van De Walle of Cerence Inc. will give a keynote lecture on a topic to be announced (and a date to be announced). This will be followed by a social event in the historical center of Ghent city.

This is your opportunity to take your methodological skills for research in (applied) linguistics, translation or interpreting studies to the next level. We are looking forward to meeting you in Ghent!
