Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

This 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).

Registration is now open for the third annual Explorations in Ethnography,
Language and Communication conference.

The conference will open on the afternoon of Thursday 23rd September with a
series of interactive data workshops facilitated by Professor Ben Rampton
(King's College London), Professor Angela Creese (University of Birmingham), Dr
Frances Rock (Cardiff University), and Dr Sarah Collins (University of York).
Each speaker will present his/her data, followed by a group discussion based on
this data. The speaker will then present a more formal paper, drawing attention
to how analysis of the data used in the session was taken up or not in the final
paper. This presentation will be followed by time for discussion, in which
participants debate the process of analysis and interpretation which led from
the raw data to the finished analysis/paper.

Friday 24th September will then comprise plenary lectures, parallel oral
presentations and a closing debate, with plenty of opportunity to exchange ideas
with speakers and other delegates.

Plenary speakers include Professor Charles Briggs (Department of Anthropology,
University of California, Berkeley) and Professor Carey Jewitt (Institute of
Education, University of London).

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 (University College London / The Nuffield Trust).
