What is an Advanced Research Residency (ARR)?
An ARR is an opportunity for Scholars from around the world, with
broadly common or connected interests, to come together to visit an
academic institution as a collective, rather than individual academic
visitors. The ARR in Language and Law welcomes scholars interested in
any area of aspect of Forensic Linguistics and Language and Law. The ARR
runs From September to December 2015 in the Centre for Language and
Communication Research at Cardiff University. Scholars can stay for the
whole duration of the event or drop in for individual sessions.
Activities will be concentrated in November, in particular, so we
envisage that some scholars will wish to attend for some or all of that
month, in particular.
During the ARR, we will host multiple visitors and will hold a number of
exciting events including a conference, specialist workshop and writing
retreat. We welcome contributions from those in attendance. The event is
open to all, from doctoral candidates to senior Professors. For more
information about the ARR, including the current programme, please go
