Call for Papers
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR APPLIED LINGUISTICS
(AAAL)

Annual Meeting, March 23-26, 1996,
Chicago, Illinois

Conference Theme: DISCOURSE COMMUNITIES
Program Chair: Elinor Ochs, UCLA

 Throughout the life span, people participate
in multiple communities which are defined to a
great extent by discourse practices. Discourse
knowledge and praxis are essential to establishing
membership in families, peer groups, classrooms,
neighborhoods, professions, intellectual paradigms,
religions, ethnic and other culturally significant
groups. Given the linguistic and social
heterogeneity of societies today, people find
themselves participating in sometimes overlapping,
sometimes disconnected social worlds. The 1996
American Association for Applied Linguistics
Conference brings together psychological, socio-
cultural, and linguistic insights into how
discourse is organized, socialized, acquired, and
assessed within and across such worlds.
