Exploring the nature of Interdisciplinary Research Discourse


The Centre for Corpus Research (CCR), University of Birmingham, is organising a seminar exploring the nature of Interdisciplinary Research Discourse on 22 September 2014. This seminar will present the interim findings of the ESRC funded project investigating the language of research articles written in interdisciplinary fields. It will consist of 4 presentations discussing the linguistic features, citation practices and the perceptions of interdisciplinary discourse. There will be ample opportunities for discussion of the findings and their potential impact. Further details can be found on www.idrd-bham.info or via email at idrd@contacts.bham.ac.uk.
