8th EMCA Doctoral Network workshop Newcastle September 2017:


The 8th EMCA Doctoral Network Meeting will be held at Newcastle University. We invite EMCA postgraduate research students to apply!

The event is an opportunity to engage with other postgraduates in an informal and supportive environment. At these Network meetings, you can present your analyses, share/discuss ideas-in-progress, undertake specialist training, and get to know your fellow EMCA researchers a little better! We welcome applications from PGR students at any stage.

We welcome proposals for data sessions and presentations with any focus.

Skills sessions and plenary talks will be related to the theme of Multimodality.

Contemporary EMCA research is increasingly getting to grips with how speech is routinely combined with the manipulation of a broad range of semiotic resources (such as embodied actions, mobility, objects) in order to achieve social actions. This workshop will discuss the opportunities and challenges that this provides.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided on both days. Information about travel, accommodation options and evening meals will be distributed to confirmed attendees. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer support/bursaries for travel or accommodation. However, if your application is accepted, there will be no attendance fee.

To attend: please fill out the application form then email the application form, or any queries, to Chris Leyland: chris.leyland@newcastle.ac.uk

Places are limited, so please apply as early as possible. The deadline to apply is August 4th. We will notify applicants of acceptance by August 11th. Please find out more about the EMCA Doctoral Network at: http://emcadoctoralnetwork.wordpress.com and join the conversation at:
