What is this school about?

The Catching Language Data Summer School will take place online on 21-25 June 2021. The School is organized by the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (LILEC) of the University of Bologna and by its newly founded Experimental Lab, funded by “Department of Excellence” program (2018-2022) granted by the Italian Ministry of Education and Research.

The Catching Language Data school intends to establish an interactive forum for PhD students who are looking to advance their skills and knowledge within the field of linguistics. More specifically, the school aims at fostering a theoretical and practical reflection of the diversity of language data (both inter- and cross-linguistically) and how to collect and manage them for subsequent research, with special emphasis on methods and tools to be employed for specific purposes. In particular, the School focuses on the following questions:

a) How to select, collect and manage linguistic data?
b) What are the available methods and tools?
c) How do we use them in practice?

The Summer School consists of 4 plenaries and 6 half-day workshops by world-renowned scholars covering most aspects of the linguistic data collection process, focusing on both spoken and written resources. Each workshop will consist of a theoretical part and a practical tutorial.

The participation to the School is free of charge, but limited to 30 people. However, the four plenaries will be open to a wider audience (registration required). More information will follow.
