NWCL Postgraduate Training Workshop

First call for registration

The North-West Centre for Linguistics is happy to announce its third annual
Postgraduate Research Training Workshop. The title of the two-day workshop is
'Researching talk: principles, practice and problems in the collection and
analysis of spoken language data'. It will be held on 1st-2nd November 2001
at Edge Hill College, which is just north of Liverpool, England. The workshop
is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and is organised
in co-operation with LOT (the Netherlands Graduate School of Linguistics).
This funding means that registration for the workshop, accommodation and food
for up to 40 participants will be free; details of the funding are given below.

The workshop will offer postgraduate researchers the chance to meet with other
postgraduates working in similar areas and also with nationally and
internationally renowned specialists who work on several different aspects of
the study of spoken language and in a range of social settings. The focus of
the workshop will be on the processes of collection and analysis of spoken
language data, and the activities are intended to be of benefit to
postgraduate research students in the planning, conduct and evaluation of
their projects.

Invited speakers include: Michael Hoey (University of Liverpool), Marilyn
Martin-Jones (University of Wales, Aberystwyth), Mark Sebba (University of
Lancaster), Dominic Watt/Paul Foulkes (University of York), Ann Williams
(Goldsmiths, University of London). Speakers will address methodological
issues in the gathering and interpretation of such data and the resolution of
problems which can confront researchers. Topics will include techniques for
the transcribing of spoken language, ethnographic approaches to language
research, the interpretation of bilingual data, the analysis of conversation,
phonetic approaches to language research, working with children as informants,
and elicitation techniques in language variation research.

Postgraduate participants will be invited to present their own research in
the form of a poster and a session will be set aside for discussion of these.
The NWCL book-token prize will be awarded to the presenter of the best poster,
as judged by the invited speakers.

40 ESRC-funded places are available to PhD students at a UK university who
are in the second, third or fourth year of their PhD study (as of November
2001). The places will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis, so
early registration is encouraged. The funding does not cover travel to and
from the workshop, and we advise participants to apply to their home
institution for such costs. LOT has agreed to contribute towards the costs of
participants from LOT institutions - please contact the workshop organisers
directly for further details. Accommodation will be in a hotel in Liverpool
city centre and transport will be provided from the hotel to the workshop
venue.

The final deadline for registration is Friday 5th October, and registration
will be possible until all the places are taken. The organisers are Jo Arthur
and Patrick Honeybone. Feel free to contact us if you have any queries. Send
emails to both of us, please: arthurj at edgehill.ac.uk and
honeybop at edgehill.ac.uk.

To register, send an email to honeybop at edgehill.ac.uk with your:
NAME
EMAIL AND POSTAL ADDRESSES
INSTITUTIONAL AFFILIATION
WORKING TITLE OF YOUR PHD PROJECT
YEAR OF STUDY (2ND, 3RD ETC.)

A second call for participation will follow in due course and further details
of the arrangements and programme will be sent out to those who register.
They will also be available on the NWCL's website, at
www.art.man.ac.uk/linguist/reswork.htm.
