Summer School in Corpus Linguistics

The ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS) – one of the constituent departments of the Heritage Language Consortium – will offer a Summer School in Corpus Linguistics in the summer of 2018. The Summer School is free of charge and covers the techniques of corpus linguistics and their application in three different areas.

The event includes both lectures and practical sessions that introduce the latest developments in the field and practical applications of cutting-edge analytical techniques. Sessions are taught by leading experts in the field from Lancaster University.

The event is intended primarily for postgraduate research students but applications from Masters-level students, postdoctoral researchers, senior researchers, and others will also be considered.

Dates: 25 – 28 June 2018 (four days)

Venue: Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK

Application: To apply for a place in one of the Lancaster summer schools in corpus linguistics, please fill in the registration form. Since the places in the summer schools are limited, we recommend applying early. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.


The summer schools are free to attend; the participants will need to arrange their own travel and accommodation. During all four days, we will offer free refreshments during the tea & coffee breaks and participants will have time during the lunch break to buy their lunch on campus.

Organising committee: Dr. Dana Gablasova (Chair), Rachael McCarthy
