Change of Leadership in CASS

Andrew Hardie is delighted to announce that he has handed over his role of CASS Centre Director to Elena Semino.

Elena has been Head of Department for Lancaster’s Department of Linguistics and English Language for 6 years, and has published widely in the areas of stylistics, metaphor theory, and medical humanities/health communication.

In Elena’s own words: 

‘It is a great honour and challenge to take over as CASS Director. Over the last four years, CASS has led the way nationally and internationally in the application of corpus methods to a wide range of social scientific problems, and has had a significant impact on research, policy and practice in many different contexts. I look forward to working with colleagues in Lancaster, and partners in the UK and around the world, to continue and extend this work in years to come.’
