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.

Invited plenary speakers include Laura Ahearn, from Rutgers University, and Mariette de Haan, from the University of Utrecht.

On the Thursday a series of interactive workshops will take place, including workshops on researching multilingualism, adults and children in virtual environments, healthcare settings, and classroom discourse. On the Friday papers and posters will be presented and discussed. Oral presentations will be 30 minutes in length, followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Dedicated time and space will also be allocated for viewing and discussion of posters.
