Pumfrey and Gregory speak at UCREL/CASS/ERC Summer School

Two members of CREME have given talks at the Lancaster Summer Schools in Interdisciplinary Digital Methods.

Stephen Pumfrey gave a plenary address today, talking about his corpus-based research using the Early English Books Online resource.

Also, Ian Gregory gave a plenary talk earlier in the week about the use of corpus data in Geographical Information Systems.

The summer school event rolls together three separate courses for PhD students and junior researchers in linguistics and other humanities/social science subjects:

  • The UCREL Summer School in Corpus Linguistics
  • The ESRC Summer School in Corpus Approaches to Social Science
  • The ERC Summer School in GIS for the Digital Humanities

All three are linked by the central theme of corpus-based methods. The summer school event will be running again in 2014.
