Workshop on Citizen Sociolinguistics

This workshop which takes place 3-4 November, explores what citizen science is, and particularly what Citizen Sociolinguistics is. It presents examples of different CS initiatives and discusses the epistemological rationale for CS, and particularly CS projects within humanities. Important topics for discussion concern the quality of citizen data, the ability of citizens’ protocol to produce valid data, the level of citizen involvement in the research process, as well as the extent to which and how CS can lead to empowerment and democratisation as stated in many recent international research policy papers.
