CASS is a Centre designed to bring a cutting-edge method in the study of language – the corpus approach – to a range of social sciences. In doing so it provides an insight into the use and manipulation of language in society in a host of areas of pressing concern, including education, hate crime and communication about health and illness. By providing fresh perspectives on such issues, we are developing new approaches to understanding and addressing phenomena such as hate speech and the stigma associated with mental illness. We work closely with stakeholders from the public sector, industry and charitable organisations. CASS has a research link with the Sydney Corpus Lab (University of Sydney) and is a member of the International Consortium for Communication in Health Care.
|CASS works on a range of core and affiliate projects covering a variety of interests including climate change, hate speech, and education. Visit the projects page for more information and updates on our work.|
