Dear all, I just wanted to circulate this announcement about a new corpus linguistics online course being run by colleagues at Lancaster University:

Shakespeare's Language: Revealing Meanings and Exploring Myths

This MOOC will appeal to anybody with an interest in Shakespeare's language, early modern English and/or corpus-methods for tackling literary and/or historical texts.

It begins on 12th July and runs for four weeks (it amounts to about three hours per week). Further details, information about registration, etc. can be found here: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/shakespeares-language/1<https://eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.futurelearn.com%2Fcourses%2Fshakespeares-language%2F1&data=04%7C01%7Cj.culpeper%40lancaster.ac.uk%7Cfdea7e96c9e245a97c2508d930a243d4%7C9c9bcd11977a4e9ca9a0bc734090164a%7C0%7C0%7C637594295735277352%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=3s%2BfPCwj3QcceipWVmnW7GkJzuBr3xx9bS%2B7Kwn5pvo%3D&reserved=0> In terms of level, the materials are pitched at first year university undergraduates. However, no background knowledge is assumed; senior sixth formers/high school students will find it accessible. Extending the other way, it is sprinkled with research findings, not to mention innovative techniques, and so will also be of interest to more senior scholars.

We'd be delighted if you and/or your students can join!

Thanks and best, Mathew ____________________
