Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Language Acquisition; Linguistic Theories; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

This conference, sponsored by the International Association of Dialogue Analysis (IADA) and held at the University of Texas at Austin, will focus on questions such as ‘How can the study of dialogue advance language learning research?’ and ‘What can interaction studies in various contexts of multilingualism and multimodalities contribute to our understanding of being multicompetent?’ It will examine how Practice Theory (Bourdieu 1977) is used to build links between the work done in areas such as interaction analysis, conversation analysis, dialogue analysis, and ethnography of native speaker production, and that of applied areas such as language acquisition, sociolinguistics, technology, and communications.

In addition, the metaphor of ‘communities of practice’ (Lave & Wenger 1991; Wenger 1998) - which refers to groups of people who interact due to their involvement in common practices, goals, and interests - will be extended as a focus for study at this conference. As fields such as language acquisition and artificial intelligence are increasingly interested in naturalistic dialogue as a source of rich linguistic and socializing input - as well as a stimulus for cognitive processes that facilitate acquisition - researchers seek to incorporate new ways of looking at dialogue. We hope this conference will stimulate discussion among researchers who represent different yet related fields focused on dialogue.
