Call for Proposals
Discourse Analysis: Works in Progress
Georgetown University Round Table
March 13, 1994
Scott F. Kiesling, Elif Tolga Rosenfeld, co-organizers

Students are invited to submit proposals for presentations of
discourse analytic work in progress. The workshop will be driven by
the presentations, although students and professors who are not
presenting are invited to participate in discussion. The workshop will
provide an opportunity for students to get feedback on their work, to
hear what other students are doing with discourse data, and to talk
with people who have similar research interests.

(1) Two copies of a 150 word description of the data (NOT an
abstract), one anonymous and one with your last name in the upper
right hand corner. Include the data collection method/procedure, the
medium (spoken, written, sign, electronic, etc.), as well as the
speech events and/or genres on which you are focusing.
(2) Two copies of a page of examples from your data which you would
like to present for discussion, one anonymous and one with your last
name in the upper right hand corner. If the proposal is accepted it
will be included in a booklet of all the data for the workshop. To
ease discussion we ask that you follow these formatting guidelines:
lines should be numbered; one inch margins should be respected; if the
language is other than English, provide an interlinear gloss and
translation. On the reverse of this page please include three
questions or points you would like to discuss with respect to your
(3)A 3x5 index card including your name, affiliation,
program/department, contact address, phone/fax number, e-mail address,
student level (undergraduate, Master's, or Ph.D), and your progress in
analysis (e.g. still gathering data, transcribing, analyzing, writing
dissertation). Also, indicate if you are prepared and would be willing
to play the audio or video tape of the data (if applicable).

Proposals must be received by January 24, 1994. Proposals will be
reviewed anonymously for originality, importance, and general
interest. The format of the workshop will depend on the proposals
received, but we will try to group projects by topic, medium,
location, etc. Acceptance notification will be by February 1.
Presenters must register for GURT presessions. ($20 before Feb. 21).
