The 3rd LinC Summer School and Workshop in Systemic Functional Linguistics
Location: Cardiff University, Wales
Date: 8 - 10 September 2014
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.
Philosophy Cafe is a space for sharing and exploring ideas, which affirms that we are all philosophers, even if we don't quite know it yet.
It aims to exploit the enthusiasm of academic philosophers and social scientists for their subject to create stimulating debates in which anyone can participate. Topics up for discussion will range from the ethics of global warming to the nature of democracy and freedom, and from corporate social responsibility to the rights and wrongs of new technologies such as genetic engineering and nanotechnology.
On the third Tuesday of each month, join us in the Cafe Bar at The Gate to listen as speakers introduce insights and invite us to address key problems. Afterwards, why not continue the debate in our blog?
The emphasis is on joining in. Philosophy Cafe starts from the assumption that everyone's viewpoint is potentially a source of illumination. Our ethos is therefore that all opinions are entitled to respect, and that open, friendly discussion, disagreement, and debate is the best way to show them that respect.
Bring an open mind along, and change the way you see the world.
Free Entry - All Welcome
Philosophy Cafe takes its inspiration from the WorldCafe approach to the exploration of ideas.
