IIEMCA conference 2011
July 10-14, 2011
The aim of the conference is to promote the study of practical action and social interaction and to provide an international forum for researchers working within the domains of Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis.
This call for papers invites abstracts addressing issues at the intersection of social action, language use and interaction within the framework of Ethnomethodology, Conversation Analysis and/or connected approaches (e.g., Interactional Linguistics). Abstracts should be submitted in English.
Abstracts should clearly state the main point or argument of the paper. They should make explicit on which empirical data and/or conceptual arguments they are based. They should situate the topic of the paper with reference to previous research. Also, authors should explain in what way the paper contributes to the development of the field.
Abstracts must be submitted online (see “ABSTRACT SUBMISSION”). Do not fax, mail or email your abstract as it will not be considered. Abstracts for three kinds of submissions can be proposed: papers in panels, individual papers, and posters. All abstracts should be anonymous, i.e., without mentioning the authors’ names in the abstract. Only one abstract as single / first author and a second as co-author will be accepted from any one individual.
