Second year undergraduate students who are majoring or minoring in the Department of Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster University are invited to apply and work with us on the Encyclopaedia of Shakespeare’s English Project. This unique internship will give students the opportunity to directly engage with the project and contribute work towards the encyclopaedia.
This year, we have three different potential projects for students to work on. Click the links below to find out more information about each project:
Students will be working on a corpus of Shakespeare’s language, comparing the language of Shakespeare to that of his contemporaries, and looking at this work within the context of current research. Whilst knowledge of corpus methods is not essential, and full training will always be provided, an eagerness to engage with this new form of language analysis is vital.
Application forms can be downloaded from the departmental website here, and then emailed to Silke Brandt.
Informal enquires about the individual projects can be made to Jonathan Culpeper: email@example.com.
