REsearch in English Linguistics
(REEL Day 2023)
Digital data in English linguistics
Saturday, 11.2.2023, 9am-6pm
IG Building NG 1.741b
This is the fifth joint REEL Day of the working groups on English linguistics of Gutenberg University Mainz and Goethe University Frankfurt a.M.. The workshop is based on seminars taught at the two universities. Students will have the opportunity to present their in-class research projects to fellow students from the partner university. After two online instantiation, we are excited that the 2023 REEL Day can take place on campus.
There are no Corona restrictions in place. For everybody’s comfort, it would be appreciated if all participants took a Corona self-test before the workshop.
Please contact Manfred Sailer (email@example.com) if you are interested in attending.
