Language and Superdiversity: exploring corpus approaches

This short series of seminars explores the possible synergies between corpus linguistics and superdiversity. The events are aimed primarily at corpus linguists interested in the implications of superdiversity for their work, and superdiversity scholars interested in learning about a potential new tool for exploring superdiverse contexts, although all are welcome!

Thursday 18 June 2015 (2.00 - 5.00 pm)

Seminar 2: Dr Rachelle Vessey, University of Newcastle
'From mulgilingualism to superdiversity in corpus linguistics: implications for research'
