      EVENT DETAILS
      Corpora, Discourse and Society

      Since the mid-1990s, research applying corpus linguistic methods to the study of discourse has expanded considerably both in volume and scope. This expansion, which is reflected in the now-considerable body of articles and books combining these approaches, has also stimulated the development of new tools of analysis, as well as the establishment of new conferences and academic journals. This event aims to showcase current applications of corpus linguistics to discourse studies in order take stock of where we are and to consider where we are going in terms of future challenges and opportunities. We invite papers that use corpus methods to analyse discourse in any domain or field of study, including (but not limited to): Critical Discourse Studies, Forensic Linguistics / Language and Law, Gender and Sexuality, Health(care) Communication, Historical Linguistics, (New) Media Discourse, Political Discourse, Pragmatics, Professional Communication, Multimodality, Register Studies, Sociolinguistics, Stylistics, and Translation Studies. Papers from disciplines outside linguistics are also welcome. Proposals are invited for 20-minute paper presentations as well as posters.
