Call for Papers
We are inviting abstracts for papers and posters for the 2010 conference on
Explorations in Ethnography Language and Communication. The theme of
the conference is 'perspectives on data'. Particular consideration will
therefore be given to papers that explore questions such as: 'what counts
as 'data' in linguistic ethnography?'; 'What is the relationship between data
and researcher or data and participant?'; 'How should/can ethnographic
data be analysed and interpreted?' Submissions are encouraged from
across disciplines and topics including, for instance, research on health,
education, culture and identity, but abstracts should provide a clear focus
on how ethnographic concepts and methods can be applied to the
description and analysis of language data.
Oral presentations will be 30 minutes in length, followed by 15 minutes for
discussion. Dedicated time and space will also be allocated for poster
presentations. Abstracts (up to 300 words) should be submitted by e-mail
attachment (Word files) to lss_eelcaston.ac.uk. Please submit two files,
one containing the abstract and details of the author(s) (name(s), affiliation,
email address) and one containing an anonymous abstract. Under the title
for the abstract, please give four keywords which summarise the
paper/poster. In the body of your email please specify whether the abstract
is for a poster or paper presentation.
The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended to Monday
26th April 2010. Registration for the conference will open in June 2010.
