Junge Sprachwissenschaft e. V.

Digital Methods in Linguistics


Last workshop of the summer term!

The registration for the last workshop is still open:
Introduction to fieldwork
- From eliciation to ELAN: Working with consultants in the field
(in English!)

Our association plans a series of workshops on the topic of digital methods for the summer term.

These workshops will be mostly independent from each other, so that you can attend single workshops without requirements or prior knowledge.

Please note that most workshops are in German. We have left the workshop titles in the language of the workshop in the table below, to avoid confusion. However, if you do understand German but feel uncomfortable speaking it, you are welcome to participate in any of the workshops and ask questions in English.

There will be two blocks of workshops (data processing and data collection). The topics will be the following:

The spots are allocated in the order of registration and by level of studies (BA > MA > PhD > Postdoc). Since allocation is conducted manually, it is possible that workshops are still listed as open online that are already fully booked. Should this be the case, we will, of course, contact you as quickly as possible.
