The Helsinki Corpus Festival, 28.9.-2.10.2011
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Helsinki Corpus, the first comprehensive historical corpus of the English language, the Research Unit for Variation, Contacts, and Change in English (VARIENG) is organising an academic conference with a difference. VARIENG is pleased to invite colleagues involved in the development and use of English historical corpora for five days of workshops, thematic sessions, and open discussions, on a variety of topics concerning historical corpus linguistics. Emphasis will be placed on looking ahead at where the discipline is headed in terms of both new developments in digital humanities and the interface between corpus compiling and linguistic methodologies.
