Call For Papers

On 30th November 2018 (Friday), the School of Health in Social Science will host the annual meeting of the Corpus Linguistics in Scotland (CLiS) network.

We are delighted to announce that the theme of the meeting will be “Corpus Linguistics in the Arts and Humanities”. The meeting is an opportunity for networking and bringing together researchers using corpus linguistics methods in the Arts and Humanities (e.g., anthropology, geography, history, law, literature, media, philosophy, religion, and also health/medical humanities).
The event will allow researchers to present their work (either completed or in progress) and to discuss their challenges of using corpus analytic methods and tools to data in the Arts and Humanities. MA and PhD students are particularly encouraged to submit their abstracts. Arts and Humanities scholars who do not know about corpus methods, but would like to find out more about it, are also welcome to attend the event.
Venue
The meeting will be held at the University of Edinburgh, School of Health in Social Science, Teviot Place, Doorway 6, Edinburgh EH8 9AG, Room 4.1 (4th floor). For a campus map, please follow this link https://www.ed.ac.uk/maps/maps
