Meeting Description:

Following the success of the first annual conference in Ethnography Language and Communication, we are now inviting abstracts for papers and posters for 2009. We welcome abstracts that explore the possibilities and problems of employing ethnographically sensitive approaches to language and communication research across a wide range of disciplines and topics (including health, education, social and political processes, culture and identity).

The second annual event has a focus on data and methodology. The selection process will therefore give particular consideration to those abstracts (a) oriented towards the concepts and methods of ethnography and (b) providing a clear focus on how these methods can be applied to the collection and analysis of language data.

This one-day conference will explore the possibilities and problems of employing
ethnographically sensitive approaches to language and communication
research across a wide range of disciplines and topics (including health,
education, social and political processes, culture and identity).

Plenary speakers are Professor Jan Blommaert (Department of Languages,
University of Jyvaskyla) and Professor Martyn Hammersley (The Open University).

Conference registrants are also invited to attend additional data-focused
interactive workshops on the afternoon of Thursday 10th September (2pm - 5pm).
Workshop facilitators include Professor Ben Rampton and Professor Celia Roberts
(King’s College London), Dr Adam Lefstein, Dr Jeff Bezemer and Dr Carey Jewitt
(Institute of Education University of London) and Dr. Sara Shaw (University
College London / The Nuffield Trust).

Registration for the conference is now open. A registration form and further
details (including a draft programme and information on travel and
accommodation) can be found at http://elc.ioe.ac.uk/aston.html. The one-day
conference fee is £35, including a buffet lunch, tea and coffee, with a reduced
rate of £15 for students. There will be a charge of £10 for the optional data-
focused workshop. Places for the data workshop will be limited so early
registration is advised.

For further details and queries, please email explorations09googlemail.com.

The conference is organised by Dr. Fiona Copland (School of Languages and
Social Sciences, Aston University), Dr. Julia Snell (Institute of Education
University of London) and Dr. Sara Shaw (Department of Primary Care and
Population Health, University College London / The Nuffield Trust).
