WCGS welcomes Dr. Silke Reineke of the Leibniz Institute for the German Language (IDS) on Tuesday, October 8th, 2019.
Please join us as she gives a talk on her work with corpora of spoken German. The “Archive of Spoken German” at IDS in Mannheim is comprised of a large corpora of audio and video recordings from different periods and settings, ranging from biographical interviews, everyday interactions, to spoken academic discourse. Dr. Silke Reineke will lead the audience on a small virtual tour through the archive to shed light on some of its ‘hidden treasures' and their potential uses for cultural history and for teaching and learning German.
This is a free event open to all. Registration is not required to attend the event. Hope to see you there!
