The Corpus Stylistics Workshop Wed 30 April 2014 University of Nottingham

Workshop convenors: Michaela Mahlberg, Peter Stockwell and Rein Sikveland

This workshop aims to contribute to the growing area of research that employs corpus linguistic methods in the study of literary texts. The Papers in the workshop address research questions in Corpus Stylistics from a variety of angles: with a focus on literary effects, differences between genres, literary translation, cognitive approaches and the reading experience. The workshop will also present corpus software that is specifically designed to support the analysis of literary texts.
