Citizen Science Exhibition

7 Projects of URPP members at Citizen Science Exhibition

Linguistic research largely rests on data collected in fieldwork and experiments. Linguists are dependent on the participation of sources willingly providing information about questions linguists want to answer. The Graduate Campus of the UZH organizes an exhibition on participatory research from varying disciplines. Linguistics is well represented. In 7 projects out of 19 members of the URPP Language and Space made significant contributions:

Citizen Linguistics (Project managers: Prof. Dr. Marianne Hundt, Prof. Dr. Martin Volk)

Language use in CMC (Project manager: Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Stark)
