3rd Forensic Linguistics Short Course

The 3rd Flsc will be an online event due to the ongoing world-wide health crisis. Nonetheless, we are confident that the 3rd FLsc will be a success as our lecturers are experienced in delivering hands-on online courses. We plan social events and will provide an online-platform for socializing before, during and after the FLsc.

As in previous years, we invited students (Bachelor’s and Master’s) as well as graduate students and postdocs from Linguistics (and its sub-disciplines), Phonetics and Phonology, Law/Legal Studies, and related fields to apply for this international interdisciplinary program. All sessions will be conducted in English.

Homework will be provided for August 18/19. Participants will be able to use our online-platform to collaboratively work on their assignments. Participants can find further information here. Please use the password provided via e-mail.

The FLsc is taught by Dr Isabel Picornell and Dr Ria Perkins and will take place online on August 16/17/20 2021. As our team is located in Europe, the time schedule of the FLsc will be planned to work best in GMT+1 and time zones nearby. You are welcome to join from any time zone, though.

Applications are closed. They were open until May 31, 2021 (10.00pm, GMT+1). Notifications of acceptance will be sent in early June. If there are any questions regarding applications, please ask the coordinators (Natascha & Dominic) via our contact form here.
