THE 21ST ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON

LANGUAGE, INTERACTION, AND SOCIAL ORGANIZATION


The LISO conference promotes interdisciplinary research and discussion in the analysis of naturally occurring human interaction. Papers will be presented by national and international scholars on a variety of topics in the study of language, interaction, and culture. The papers primarily employ analysis of naturally occurring data drawing from methodologies that include conversation analysis, discourse analysis, ethnographic methods, ethnomethodology, interactional linguistics, and interactional sociolinguistics. The conference theme this year is “Studying Interaction, Advancing Social Justice: Identities, Ideologies, and Inequalities”. We welcome abstracts from graduate students and faculty working in the areas of Anthropology, Applied Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Communication, Education, Linguistics, Psychology, and Sociology. Presenters will have 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion.
