Meeting Description:

Workshop: 30 Years of Talk: Research into Discourse Across Lifespan
Date: Tuesday 23 July 2019, 10:00-17:00 (Following public lectures by Prof Penelope Eckert & Prof James Walker on Monday 22 July)
Venue: The University of Melbourne, Parkville Campus Victoria, Australia

Researchers and research students are invited to join the workshop on longitudinal studies of individuals’ discourse. In this workshop, six researchers from the collaborative 30 Years of Talk project (ARCDP170102598) will present and discuss their work-in-progress, joined by two eminent sociolinguists in the field of language variation and change as discussants.

This workshop follows public lectures on the afternoon of Monday 22 July 2019, where the two invited speakers will speak on language and identity across lifespan(s). The 30 Years of Talk project team will also give a short presentation on their project. This will provide a unique opportunity for researchers to engage with an as yet underexplored aspect of sociolinguistics — shifts and changes in language at the discourse level over lifespans. The lectures and workshop will also be of interest to those who are working in the field of Japanese linguistics.

30 Years of Talk Project Team: Professor Kaori Okano (La Trobe University); Dr Shimako Iwasaki (Monash University); Dr Claire Maree (University of Melbourne); Dr Ikuko Nakane (University of Melbourne); Associate Professor Chie Takagi (Osaka University); Dr Lidia Tanaka (La Trobe University)

Invited Speakers/Discussants:
Professor Penelope Eckert (Stanford University)
Professor James Walker (La Trobe University)
