Mapping masterclass with Montgomery

Posted on November 23, 2014 by

Dr Chris Montgomery from the University of Sheffield will be visiting us this Wednesday (26th Nov) to give a masterclass on mapping techniques for linguistic data. The masterclass will be in Ellen Wilkinson B3.3, from 11am-1pm.

Dr Montgomery is known for his innovative work on visualizations of dialectological data, including starburst charts. There’s no set reading for this seminar, but you may be interested in this recent paper from the Journal of Linguistic Geography.
