The 2012 PALA Student Summer School, which operates within the framework of the Middelburg School of Rhetoric, will take place in Middelburg, the Netherlands from the 13th to the 17th August 2012. The themes this year are historical stylistics and corpus stylistics and the two guest lecturers are Professor Beatrix Busse from the University of Heidelberg and Dr. Dan McIntyre from the University of Huddersfield. The event is organised by the PALA chair Dr. Michael Burke of University College Roosevelt Academy. Please note that only 25 places are available and these will be allocated on a "first paid, first served" basis. The fees for the summer school have been reduced this year from 300 Euros per person to just 200 Euros per person.

A flyer for the 2012 event is available here (pdf), and more practical details, including how to apply, can be found on the further information (pdf) document.
