Olga Sozinova at Workshop in Leiden

Olga Sozinova, a third-year undergraduate student, shared her impressions of a workshop she attended in Leiden.

On March 19-20, I participated in the workshop ‘Structure of Verse’, which took place in the beautiful city of Leiden. The first day of the event was dedicated to the structure of verse and its perception, and the second day was dedicated to the principles of construction and use of poetic corpora.

On the first day, I attended a lecture by Nigel Fabb from Strathclyde University, who spoke on verse line processing in working memory. On the second day, I was greatly impressed by the reports by Dan Brown from the University of Waterloo and by Paolo Bravi from Cagliari Conservatory of Music, Italy. Dan Brown spoke on automatic processing of rap songs and the correlation between the complexity of rhymes and songs’ popularity. Paolo Bravi’s report was dedicated to a traditional poetry contest in Sardinia called ‘mutetu longu’, which has a long history and very complicated rules.

In addition, I took part in a poster session during the first day of the workshop and presented the project ‘Rhyme Properties in Marina Tsvetaeva’s Verse’. My poster drew a lot of attention from participants, who gave me advice on how to improve my research work. For example, Nigel Fabb suggested that I add an experiment connected with working memory and mentioned some innovative ideas concerning my project. Tatyana Skulacheva, Leading Research Fellow at the Russian Language Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, paid special attention to my experiment with rhyme elicitation. She invited me to take part in the Gasparov Readings.

During the workshop, I met a number of interesting people and learned a lot not only about metrics but also about other areas of linguistics, for example, German studies and musicology. I also managed to walk along narrow streets of Leiden. I was really surprised to see poems in different languages written on house walls; there was a poem by Marina Tsvetaeva among them.
