Groningen Symposium Language and social Interaction 2021:


Dear colleagues,

In the autumn of this year, Tom Koole will retire from his position at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. To celebrate this in style, we are currently organizing a hybrid Groningen Symposium on Language and Interaction, on Thursday 4 November. Six speakers will present their work on topics and methods that Tom has also extensively explored during his career: Charles Antaki (keynote; Loughbourough University, UK), Jan Berenst (Emeritus NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands), Jenny Watermeyer (University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa), Wyke Stommel (Radboud University, the Netherlands), Jan ten Thije (Utrecht University, the Netherlands), Hedwig te Molder (VU Amsterdam, the Netherlands). To conclude the day, Tom himself will also give a lecture.

More details on the programme will be made available in the coming months, but we plan on starting at 9am, and on ending the day around 4:30pm.

We are preparing for a hybrid event, for both some of the speakers and for part of the audience. Depending on the corona measures at the time of the symposium, we will determine how much on-site presence is possible. We will keep those interested in participating posted on all developments.

If you want to attend, we want to ask you to fill in the following form (, before June 18th. In the form, you can also indicate whether you for sure want to participate online, whether you’d like to come to Groningen, or whether you’d rather wait making any statements on this for now. This way, we can keep you posted about the programme as well as the logistics and practical issues.

Tom is aware of us organizing this event and knows which speakers we invited, but the details are still a surprise. Consequently, we want to ask to not to talk to Tom in detail about this day.

Kind regards,

  • Mike Huiskes,
  • Henrike Padmos,
