The course consists of four two-hour sessions over four weeks and will explore key notions of relevance theory and ways of testing and developing the theory. It will be particularly useful for early career researchers and graduate research students.

The sessions will be run by Billy Clark, Associate Professor in English Language and Linguistics, Media Department.
