Meeting Description:

Linguistic Ethnography: Benefits and Challenges

Part of the aim of this conference is to ‘take stock’ of what linguistic ethnography (LE), as an interdisciplinary and growing field, has achieved and where it stands compared to other perspectives on the study of language and communication.

Call for Papers:

We invite contributions from across disciplines and topics such as health, education, culture and identity, and communication in digital environments. We encourage abstracts which explore the benefits of taking an ethnographically informed approach to researching language and communication compared to other perspectives, and / or the challenges which arise in doing so. We are particularly interested in papers that discuss what an linguistic ethnography (LE) perspective allows us to see and understand that other approaches don’t, or in papers that are open and candid about the difficulties and limitations of LE and how these can perhaps be addressed.

Abstracts (up to 300 words) should be submitted by email attachment (Word files) to Eelc5confgmail.com. 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 is Friday 4 April 2014.
