We are delighted to note that the Applied Corpus Linguistics Project ‘Interactional Variation Online’ has been successfully funded by IRC Digital Humanities. This project is funded by UKRI-AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) and the IRC (Irish Research Council) under the ‘UK-Ireland Collaboration in the Digital Humanities Research Grants Call’ (grant numbers AH/W001608/1 and IRC/W001608/1). Excellent news for all involved including our colleague Prof. Fiona Farr, UL's ACL Project Partner.
The project first aims to examine virtual workplace communication to gain depth of insight into the potential barriers to effective communication. The second aim is to propose the next generation of frameworks for analysing online discourse and will make these frameworks available to all arts and humanities research and end user communities. This will lead to a step change in our ability to develop equality of access in online communication.
