ANNOUNCEMENT OF A RESEARCH SEMINAR

"POWER, ETHICS AND VALIDITY: Issues in the
Relationship between Researcher and
Researched" - A Seminar for researchers and
students in the social sciences and
humanities, to be held at Lancaster
University, June 27th-29th 1994.

The seminar is being run by CRILE (the
Centre for Research in Language Education),
based at Lancaster University Department of
Linguistics and MEL, and is the fourth in
an annual series under the general title
Research Issues in Applied Linguistics. It
is intended for researchers and students in
applied linguistics, education, language
studies, and the social sciences and
humanities, registered for MAs or
doctorates in the UK or elsewhere. Any
other interested people are also welcome to
attend.

It will consist of a mixture of formal
talks, discussions, 'case study' sessions,
and'clinics', all designed to emphasise
practical issues. Topics to be covered
include:
Designing a research project with people in
mind; Collaborative research projects;
Establishing and maintaining relations:
before, during and after the project; The
social and institutional context of the
research; Issues related to particular
research tools; Power and empowerment in
research. The main plenary speaker will be
Ben Rampton.

Participants are encouraged to offer poster
presentations if they so desire, and there
will also be an opportunity for short
spoken participant presentations.

CONVERGING METHODS FOR UNDERSTANDING READING AND DYSLEXIA
 August 4 - August 6 1994
 Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia

Organized by Raymond Klein & Paddy McMullen, this symposium brings
together world-class scholars who have developed and applied the
most fruitful methods for understanding the connections between
the visual and language processing modules necessary for reading.
Lectures and discussion will emphasize: 1) the nature of these
modules, 2) connection failures that occur in developmental and
acquired dyslexia, and 3) the remediation strategies that appear
to be efficacious in resolving these failures.

 Speaker Titles
Marlene Behrmann Cognitive neuropsychological analysis of
 the acquired dyslexias and their remediation.
Derek Besner Meaningless routes in naming: resurrecting
 the lexicon.
Martha Farah Could there be a dedicated brain system for
 reading?
Morton-Ann Gernsbacher The mechanism of suppression as a
 component of reading skill.
Usha Goswami Integrating orthographic and phonological
 knowledge as reading develops: onsets, rimes
 and analogies in childrenUs reading.
Betty-Ann Levy Whole word vs phonological training in reading
 education.
Maureen Lovett Remediating the core deficits of developmental
 dyslexia: Evidence of transfer-of-learning
 following strategy and phonologically based
 reading training programs.
Bruce McCandliss Brain plasticity in learning visual words.
Richard Olson Component skills in reading: implications of
 differential heritability for remediation
 strategies.
Steven Petersen Functional neuroimaging studies of reading
 processes.
David Plaut Computational modeling of reading, dyslexia and
 remediation.
Keith Rayner What can we learn by recording eye movements
 during reading?

Discussants (John Connolly, Mike Masson, Dennis Phillips, and the
organizers) will stimulate the exchange of information on the
latest findings and methodological advances to lay a foundation
for the development of converging applications to advance the
field.
