The goal of the summer school is to offer research and training in both understanding the Systemic Functional Linguistic theory of language and applying it to real-world challenges. The summer school will run two parallel courses:
Introduction to Systemic Functional Linguistics
Both are suitable for professionals, students, and researchers who have an interest in learning more about Systemic Functional Linguistics and/or corpus linguistics and its applications.
Susan Hunston, Gill Francis, Geoff Thompson, Mick O’Donnell, Robin Fawcett, Stella Neumann, Serge Sharoff, Ben Clarke, Emma Moreton, Tom Bartlett, Gerard O’Grady, Lise Fontaine
Further details will be posted soon.
Call for Poster Presentations
Participants at the summer school are encouraged to submit an abstract for a Poster Presentation. Accepted proposals will be presented at a poster session. Deadline for submissions is May 1st 2014. Send abstracts of 500 words to email@example.com.
Registration will open in the autumn 2013. Places are limited.
A full bursary, funded by Cardiff University and covering fees, transport, food and accommodation (to a maximum of fees + £1,000) is available for participants without institutional funding.
Those eligible for the funding should send a CV and covering letter, stating how their work relates to SFL; how much funding is being sought; and how this money will be used.
Please email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications for funding should reach us by 15th April and we will advise all applicants of the results as soon as possible afterwards.
Registration and course fee
There are a limited number of places available so please book early. The summer school will only run if the minimum number of places are filled. The registration form is now available from the menu in the top right section of this page. Please note that we cannot accept online payments. Registration is only complete once payment is received.
The registration fee for the full three days of the summer school is £235.00. The fee will include course materials, bibliography, and Certificate of Attendance. Meals are not included in the registration fee. There is a cafeteria in the building and there are many local shops, pubs and cafes in the immediate area for those who want to purchase their own food and refreshments rather than bring their own.
University accommodation will be available for those who wish to stay in halls of residence. The accommodation form is now available (see above). There is also a link to other places to stay in Cardiff.
