In their Conversation article, Dr Anna Cermakova and Prof Michaela Mahlberg write about gender imbalance in children's literature – with examples from the ChiLit corpus.
"With less than fifty days until the Literature exams, this exciting new approach could not have fallen into teachers' hands at a better time!" In her guest post on the CLiC Dickens Blog, teacher Katherine Howard (Brockington College, South Leicestershire) writes about using the CLiC web app for GCSE English revision with a case study of 'A Christmas Carol'.
The CLiC web app has been featured as a resource by the Digital Literary Stylistics Special Interest Group at the University of Basel's Digital Humanities Lab. Check out the guest post introducing CLiC on the accompanying SIG_DLS (Doing Digital Literary Stylistics) Blog.
We are proud to offer throughout the academic year a series of events including the annual John Sinclair Lecture.
In 2017, the Centre hosted the International Corpus Linguistics conference.
