On alternate years UCSB and UCLA graduate students organize a spring
conference to encourage the presentation of research, and to provide a
forum for scholarly engagement on issues in language and social
interaction. This is the eleventh year of the conference, and its fourth
time at UCSB. Historically the conference has presented research in the
traditions of conversation analysis, interactional sociolinguistics, the
ethnography of communication, language and education, and qualitative and
quantitative research methods.
Submissions should address topics at the intersection of language,
interaction, and culture from theoretical perspectives which employ data
from recorded, spontaneous interaction. This includes but is not limited to
conversation analysis, discourse analysis, ethnography of communication,
ethnomethodology, and interactional sociolinguistics. We welcome abstracts
from graduate students and faculty working in the areas of Anthropology,
Applied Linguistics, Education, Linguistics, Psychology, and Sociology.
Speakers will have 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for
discussion. Selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Abstracts are due no later than February 15, 2005, by e-mail submission only.
Please see submission guidelines below and the LISO webpage
