Contributions from interactional sociolinguistics and conversation analysis
Modern European societies are increasingly multilingual. The still
accelerating international cooperation in politics, business, education,
and in the private sphere, as well as the massive migration into Europe in
the last 30 years, have created strong linguistic and cultural diversities.
This situation has been studied within interactional sociolinguistics
following the work of Dell Hymes and John Gumperz, but has within the
latest decade also become an area of interest among researchers working
within Conversation Analysis.
The aim of the course is to introduce the students to different studies off

The course will consist of lectures and guided discussions by prominent
figures within Conversation Analysis and Interactional Sociolinguistics who
have all worked with data from linguistically and/or culturally diverse
environments. There will be time reserved for data-sessions and round-table
discussions which will be organized as flexible responses to the interests
of the participants and lecturers in specific topics.
