Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Meeting Description: AIEMCA brings together and showcases Australasian research from within the paradigms of Ethnomethodology, Conversation Analysis, and Membership Categorisation Analysis. This year we invite research on the theme of Knowledge and Asymmetries in Action. One of the strengths of the EM/CA/MCA paradigm is the ability to demonstrate the consequentiality of the sequential deployment of members’ knowledge(s) in interaction and/or the relevance of asymmetries to members in interaction.


The conference will be held in at The Ship Inn, in the heart of Brisbane at Southbank. What was once a rowdy sailor’s drinking den has been transformed into a civilised Gastro Pub complete with a separate and impressive function and convention facility catering for up to 200 guests.
