Conference on New Methods in Historical Corpora

University of Manchester, 29-30 April 2011

The GerManC Project is hosting a Conference on New Methods in Historical Corpora. Funded jointly by the ESRC and the AHRC, GerManC is engaged in compiling a representative historical corpus of German for the early modern period (1650-1800). The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2011, and this gives an opportune moment to bring specialists together to discuss the construction, annotation and analysis of diachronic corpora in all languages. This conference will provide a forum for scholars compiling such corpora (or planning to do so) to exchange their experiences and discuss their results.

The conference will be held on 29 and 30 April at the University of Manchester's  Chancellors Hotel and Conference Centre , which is an ideal environment for formal and informal meetings.

Organisers: Paul Bennett, Martin Durrell, Silke Scheible, Richard Jason Whitt.
