Call for Participants to workshop

Corpus Approaches to Chinese Social Science (CACSS)

With the enhancement of interdisciplinary awareness, linguistic methods, such as corpus based discourse studies, have been applied to sociology, ethnography, cultural studies, psychology, cognitive science and computer science, etc. In the past decade Chinese social scientists are seeking for new methods in analyzing large quantity of texts in addition to quantitative and qualitative analysis. For example, the Contemporary China Social Life Data and Research Centre (CCSLC), Fudan University of China has collected unique set of data on contemporary Chinese social life since 1949, consists of more than 300,000 personal correspondences, over 1,000 books of personal notes, diaries, huge information of the history of personal life, as well as large amount of interview notes, and monographs. The Brill Company has signed a contract with Fudan University Publishing House for publication of 30 volumes of them. This precious material is inevitably adopted as a default resource for the research which language matters. it will undoubtedly be very helpful for understanding the construction of contemporary China's social order and deep structure of ordinary people's relationships. Inspirited by the ESRC Centre of Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS) at Lancaster University, CCPN Global engages the CASS, Centre for Applied Linguistics (CAL) of UCL, the Contemporary China Social Life Data and Research Centre (CCSLC) of Fudan University and the RCDC (the Research Centre for Discourse and Communication, Zhejiang University of Media and Communication), together developing the programme of the CACSS. This workshop will introduce related work and engage further discussions with people who are interested in this initiative.

会议通知:语料库与中国社科研究工作坊

随着跨学科意识的增强,诸如基于语料库的话语研究等语言学方法已经越来越多地被社会学、人类学、文化研究、心理学、认知科学等学科采纳。在过去的10多年中,中国社会科学界一直在寻找处理大规模文本以及分析的新方法。比如复旦大学当代中国社会生活数据研究中心有待开发的全国唯一的1949年以来关于当代中国社会生活的系列数据,其中包括三十万封家书,一千多本个人笔记和日记,大量的个人生活历史、采访笔记以及专著。荷兰博睿(Brill)出版公司己经与中国复旦大学签约出版其中30卷资料集。这些珍贵的资料无疑可作为语言佐证,成为相关学科研究的默认资料,有助于理解当代中国社会秩序的建构和人与人之间深层关系的结构。受兰卡斯特大学英国经济与社会科学基金会资助“语料库方法与社会科学”(CASS)项目的启发,全球中国比较研究会携同复旦大学当代中国社会生活资料研究中心和浙江传媒学院话语与传播研究中心一起发起了语料库方法与中国社会科学的探索研究。这个工作坊将推出相关的研究并为志趣相同者搭建一个探讨与交流的平台。
