Top quality research requires outstanding methodological skills. That is why the Department of Linguistics and the Department of Translation, Interpreting and Communication of Ghent University will jointly organize a Summer School on “Methods in Language Sciences” in August 2022.

This Summer School is targeted at both junior and senior researchers and offers nine multi-day modules on various topics, ranging from quantitative to qualitative methods and covering introductory and advanced statistical analysis, Natural Language Processing (NLP), eye-tracking, survey design, ethnographic methods, as well as specific tools such as PRAAT and ELAN. In 2022 we have a new module on Linear Mixed Models. All lecturers are internationally recognized experts with a strong research and teaching background.

Because the modules will partly be held in parallel sessions, participants have to choose one or two modules to follow (see the Programme for details). No prerequisite knowledge or experience is required, except for Modules 2 and 9, which deal with advanced statistical data analysis.

We are proud to welcome two keynote speakers at this year’s summer school: Shravan Vasishth and Crispin Thurlow, who both also act as lecturers.

This is your opportunity to take your methodological skills for research in (applied) linguistics, translation or interpreting studies to the next level. We are looking forward to meeting you in Ghent!
