CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

Georgetown University Round Table on Language and Linguistics (GURT)
2002:
Discourse Analysis and Technology: Multimodal Discourse Analysis

March 7 - 9, 2002
Georgetown University
Washington, D.C.


Conference Chairs: Ron Scollon and James E. Alatis


DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 21, 2001


GURT 2002 will open up a discussion among discourse analysts and others
both in linguistics and in related fields about the two-fold impact of
new communication technologies: The impact on how we collect,
transcribe, and analyze discourse data and, possibly more importantly,
the impact on social interactions and discourses themselves that these
technologies are having. Discourse analysis as we know it is in many
ways the product of technological change. Small, inexpensive cassette
tape recorders made it possible to capture language in use in a way that
was prohibitively difficult before the 60's. Now we are seeing the
proliferation of communication technologies from palm-sized digital
video recorders to cell phones and chat rooms on the internet. Journals
are going online and theses are being submitted in multimedia formats.
The term 'multimodality' is coming to be used across many fields within
which linguists work to encompass these many new technological changes.

GURT 2002 brings together scholars working in a variety of fields and
subdisciplines of linguistics both to assess the state of the art in
different areas of research as well as to facilitate cross-disciplinary
and cross-subfield links in the development of research in discourse and
technological change.
