Dubrovnik Fall School in Linguistic Methods, October 20–26, 2013

The National Graduate Researcher School in Linguistics and Philology in Norway invites you to participate in its first fall school in linguistic methods. The fall school will take place at CAAS, Centre for Advanced Academic Studies, in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

The researcher school aims to give national and international PhD candidates the skills and competence needed for advanced research in linguistics and language studies. The fall school is a followup of the successful summer school organized by NHH Norwegian School of Economics, the University of Bergen and the University of Oslo in August 2012, the Svolvær Summer School in Linguistic Theory and Methods. As requested by the participants in Svolvær, this year's fall school will have an even more distinct focus on the methodological aspects of different kinds of linguistic research. The course will be a combination of lectures and hands-on work for the PhD candidates, including presentations of and comments on thesis project proposals, draft chapters, etc. We anticipate that it will be very useful for the participants to learn more about methods in cognitive linguistics and corpus linguistics, to get the chance to have their own work commented on by leading professionals in the field, and to receive ideas on how to handle their linguistic data and how to test their hypotheses.

Credits awarded: 5 ECTS

Application procedure

The application deadline is September 10. PhD candidates at Norwegian institutions have first priority for attending the fall school. On September 3, the course will be announced internationally, and then candidates from other countries will also be accepted.  Since the number of spaces at the course is limited, we encourage interested candidates to fill out the registration form as soon as possible and preferably before September 3.
