Meeting Description:

Following the success of the first annual conference in Ethnography Language
and Communication, we are now inviting abstracts for papers and posters for
2009. We welcome abstracts that explore the possibilities and problems of
employing ethnographically sensitive approaches to language and
communication research across a wide range of disciplines and topics
(including health, education, social and political processes, culture and
identity).

The second annual event has a focus on data and methodology. The selection
process will therefore give particular consideration to those abstracts (a)
oriented towards the concepts and methods of ethnography and (b) providing a
clear focus on how these methods can be applied to the collection and
analysis of language data.

This one-day conference will explore the possibilities and problems of
employing
ethnographically sensitive approaches to language and communication
research across a wide range of disciplines and topics (including health,
education, social and political processes, culture and identity).

Plenary speakers are Professor Jan Blommaert (Department of Languages,
University of Jyvaskyla) and Professor Martyn Hammersley (The Open
University).

Conference registrants are also invited to attend additional data-focused
interactive workshops on the afternoon of Thursday 10th September (2pm -
5pm).
Workshop facilitators include Professor Ben Rampton and Professor Celia
Roberts
(King’s College London), Dr Adam Lefstein, Dr Jeff Bezemer and Dr Carey
Jewitt
(Institute of Education University of London) and Dr. Sara Shaw (University
College London / The Nuffield Trust).

Registration for the conference is now open. A registration form and further

details (including a draft programme and information on travel and
accommodation) can be found at http://elc.ioe.ac.uk/aston.html. The one-day
conference fee is £35, including a buffet lunch, tea and coffee, with a
reduced
rate of £15 for students. There will be a charge of £10 for the optional
data-
focused workshop. Places for the data workshop will be limited so early
registration is advised.
