GURT 2002: Second call for papers and change of deadline for submission
of abstracts:

NEW DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: FRIDAY OCTOBER 26, 2001

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

http://www.georgetown.edu/events/gurt

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

Conference Chairs: Ron Scollon and James E. Alatis

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.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics
(GURT) 2002 welcomes papers related to the conference theme, including
but not limited to the topics of multimodal discourse analysis, the
impact of technology on discursive practices, and the effect of new
technologies on data collection, analysis and presentation. We invite
proposals for individual papers as well as for 2-hour colloquia.
Specifications for all proposal submissions follow.

INDIVIDUAL PAPERS will be 20 minutes long followed by 10 minutes of
discussion. To propose an individual paper, send four copies of a
one-page abstract. In the upper left-hand corner of one copy, place
the submitter's name, address, phone, e-mail address, and
institutional affiliation. The other three copies should contain no
identifying information.

Organizers of COLLOQUIA may send proposals for 2-hour blocks of time.
Colloquium organizers serve as the liaison between participants in
their colloquium and the GURT 2002 organizers, and are responsible for
communication among the participants. To propose a colloquium, send
four copies of a single page statement from the organizer explaining
the theme of the colloquium, how the individual presentations relate
to each other, and how the time will be allocated. In the upper
left-hand corner of one copy, place the organizer's name, address,
phone, e-mail address, and institutional affiliation. The other three
copies should contain no identifying information.

In addition to the organizer's umbrella abstract, four copies of
one-page abstracts should be sent for each individual presentation
within the colloquium. In the upper left-hand corner of one copy,
place the presenter's name, address, phone, e-mail address, and
institutional affiliation. The other three copies should contain no
identifying information. Abstracts for all presentations within one
colloquium must be submitted together.
