Visiting Scholar: Karen Corrigan

We are very pleased to be able to welcome Karen Corrigan from Newcastle University in the UK. Karen's interests are centered on sociolinguistics and corpus linguistics. Much of her current research focuses on diachronic views of Irish English.

Karen will be here from February 7th to 12th, working with Sali, Chris Harvey, and visiting Ph.D. student Claire Childs (also from Newcastle) on variation in negation in multiple varieties of English (e.g. 'there wasn't anyone' versus 'there was no one').

She will be giving a talk on February 7th from 10 AM to 12 PM in SS 2114: "Craics, Gegs and Barszcz: The Linguistic Ecology of Northern Ireland Past and Present".

More details can be found at Karen's website.

Welcome to Karen (and to Claire)!
