Subject: Linguistic Ethnography Second Research Seminar

The second research seminar of the BAAL Special Interest Group on Linguistic
Ethnography will be held at the University of Wales Conference Centre in
Gregynog (near Newtown, Powys. Wales, UK) on the weekend of April 27-28th,
2002. The overall aim of this research seminar will be to extend and further
develop the dialogue about theory and method in ethnographic research on
language and literacy initiated in the first seminar in this series at the
University of Leicester (details of the Leicester seminar are available at This dialogue will be extended and
developed in three broad ways at Gregynog:
(1) By considering issues of theory and method arising from ethnographic
research in bilingual and multilingual settings;
(2) By revisiting the notion of 'genre' and its use in ethnographic
research on language and literacy;
(3) By exploring links with ethnographic research conducted by other social
scientists in the UK.

The first theme has been adopted because the seminar is to be held in a
bilingual context in Wales.

Further information about this research seminar is available at the
following website:

The local organisers are based at the University of Wales Aberystwyth. They
are: Marilyn Martin-Jones, Department of Education ( and Wini
