of topics in discourse analysis, ranging from discourse analytic theory
to the use of discourse analysis as a tool in other disciplines. Papers

conversation, and in therapeutic, political, legal, religious, and other
institutional contexts, addressing such areas as gender,identity, argument,
authority, and narrative. The discourse analytic approaches include
interactional sociolinguistics, critical discourse analysis, ethnography,
conversation analysis, and cognitive science. The conference presenters,
