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.
