Corpus Linguistics in the South
The idea for a series of 'Corpus Linguistics in the South' events came out of the Birmingham 2011 conference where a group of us were reflecting on how the majority of events tend to happen in the north or the Midlands. So, this represents an attempt to redress the balance a little; to facilitate networking amongst corpus linguists in the south and to tempt other corpus linguists south for a change! The meetings have been very successful and have even lead to spin-offs in the UK and further afield, such as Corpus Linguistics in the Midlands, Corpus Linguistics in the very very South (in South Africa) and Corpus Linguistics in the… East (University of East Finland).
In addition to the main events we also post information about free lectures on corpus linguistics in the area, for instance in early 2013 Alison Sealey and Paul Baker visited the University of Portsmouth.
The events are intended to be as open and inclusive as possible and to reflect this we have so far managed to maintain a no-fees policy on the meetings. If you would like to know more, or perhaps get involved in organising a seminar/workshop, please contact Charlotte Taylor or just check this site for updates and events.
