Crow researchers Michelle McMullin, Ola Swatek, and Hadi Banat are presenting “Constructive Distributed Work: How Crow builds ethics, equity and access in research teams” at NCSU on Tue Feb 8 at 3:00pm Eastern.

Emily Palese has been a Crow team member since 2019, and she also holds leadership positions at the University of Arizona where she earned her PhD in 2021. Collaborative work has been important to Emily for a long time, and she gains team experience from her work on the Crow repository, AZTESOL, the SLW collaborative, and WriPACA.

We launched CIABATTA, Corpus In A Box: Automated Tools, Tutorials, & Advising, on December 6th, 2021. Attendees from all over the world learned how they can build their own corpora to aid them in research and teaching, regardless of their previous coding experience.

Thanks to an internal grant, Crow’s Purdue team has added three new undergraduate researchers: Hannah Brostrom, Abby Elkin, and Anna Shura. Meet our new team members!

The Crow team is thrilled to announce the release of Corpus in a Box: Automated Tools, Tutorials, & Advising (CIABATTA). We invite you to attend our launch event and open house: Mon Dec 6, 10am; Tue Dec 7, 8am (US/Arizona time).

On October 23rd, 2021, Arizona Crow researchers Anh Dang, Hui Wang, and Ali Yaylali hosted an online workshop at the Arizona Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (AZTESOL) 2021 conference: “Exploring tense-agreement issues in L2 writing using a learner corpus.”

Grant funding will allow us to hire four undergraduate researchers for AY21–22: processing data, completing user experience research, and updating our web site. Open immediately and until filled.
