CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT and CALL FOR PAPERS

Georgetown University Round Table on Languages 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


NEW DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: FRIDAY DECEMBER 14, 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.

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

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.
