Website: http://www.isle-summer-school-2017.ur.de

Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate


Description:

Aim and Scope:

The 2017 ISLE Summer School addresses young researchers (MA-level, PhD-level),
who are working in the field of World Englishes research and are encountering
the new methodological challenges posed by the discipline. For such
researchers, the summer school provides fresh insights and in-depth knowledge
of up-to-date methodology. Four different formats are envisaged: 1) Keynote
lectures by leading researchers on current topics of World Englishes research
as well as methodological aspects and ongoing changes in the discipline, 2)
workshops (in reasonably small groups, teaching essential skills and
complementing the topics addressed in the keynote lectures from a
methodological and – most importantly – hands-on perspective, 3) presentations
by participants on their own on-going research projects (optional), and 4)
individual consultations offered by the keynote speakers and workshop
instructors (optional).

In sponsoring the summer school, the International Society for the Linguistics
of English (ISLE) aims to provide a forum for MA and PhD students and early
career researchers to familiarize themselves with developments in the field
and to strengthen their international networks of cooperation. 

Format of the Summer School:

The summer school consists of a combination of components, including keynote
lectures, project presentations by the participants, workshops on current
methodological issues, and opportunities for individual consultation.

Keynote Lectures:

- Marianne Hundt (University of Zurich): Morpho-syntactic Variation in World
Englishes – The Corpus-Based Approach  
- Lisa Lim (University of Hong Kong): Englishes in an age of reimagining:
Perspectives from urban, online, multicultural Asia
- Daniel Schreier (University of Zurich): Sociolinguistic fieldwork and recent
developments in sociolinguistics (working title)
- Edgar Schneider (University of Regensburg): World Englishes as a scholarly
discipline: Evolution and current challenges

Workshops:

- Analysing World Englishes in Praat (Alexander Kautzsch, University of
Regensburg)
- Collecting and analysing diachronic data in World Englishes (Thorsten Brato,
University of Regensburg)
- Collecting field data in World Englishes (Sarah Buschfeld, University of
Regensburg)
- Corpus data: from compilation to statistical modelling (Sandra Götz/Tobias
Bernaisch, University of Giessen)
- Transcribing and annotating data in ELAN (Naomi Nagy, University of Toronto)

Presentations (Optional):

We invite participants to present their ongoing or planned research projects.
The main aim is to give young scholars an opportunity to present their ideas
to and get feedback from distinguished scholars and peers alike. Presentations
are scheduled to take 25 minutes (15 minutes presentation + 10 minutes
discussion). 

Individual Consultations (Optional):

In addition to the presentations, participants will be offered an opportunity
to discuss their research projects or ideas in individual consultation
sessions of approximately 20 minutes length with one of the plenary speakers
and teachers of the summer school.
