Mixed-methods language analysis in health research: investigating metaphor in cancer and self-focus in mental health


In this seminar, Professor Elena Semino (Lancaster University) and Dr Zsófia Demjén (The Open University) discussed the potential of different language analysis techniques, including corpus linguistics, for contributing insights to health research, using two research examples: metaphors used in cancer, and an exploration of self-focus in depression and schizophrenia.

Date and location: 24 March 2016, 2-3pm, Seminar room, Wing A, 6th floor, Maple House, 149 Tottenham Court Road, London W1T 7NF.
