The Centre for Linguistic Research is a research forum for members of the University of Sheffield who conduct research on language. Although most of our members are linguists from the Schools of English and Languages & Cultures, we invite staff and students from across the university with interests in any area of linguistics to become involved with the Centre and to participate in our projects and activities.
Th CLR has a three-fold mission:
- to bring together researchers interested in language from across the university;
- to encourage and support external bids for (interdisciplinary) research projects;
- and to develop joint initiatives for postgraduate research and training in all of our constituent departments.
We organise activity-based meetings: short hands-on demonstration sessions, several-day masterclasses, grant applicartion support, project preparations and more. This involves pooling local resources and inviting expert contributions.
