International Academy for CA (IACA16) July 2016:


With the support of ISCA (the International Society for Conversation Analysis), the Language and Social Interaction group of the University of Groningen will organize the first

International Academy for Conversation Analysis (IACA16)

July 11 – 14, 2016, in Groningen, The Netherlands

IACA16 will take place in between two ICCA-conferences (2014 and 2018) and will focus on the research process rather than on research output. The academy is meant for CA researchers in all career stages, including PhD students. It will offer members of the CA community an environment to learn from each other about analytical choices, modes of analytical reasoning, and the different technologies that may support CA research.

The programme comprises four 4-day workshops on the following topics:

  1. "Interaction Organization": Geoffrey Raymond on sequence organization
  2. "Actions and Activities": Paul Drew & Merran Toerien on action formation
  3. "Practices": Lorenza Mondada on embodiment
  4. "Contexts": Jeffrey Robinson on medical interaction

and two plenary lectures:

  1. Elisabeth Couper-Kuhlen: on Interactional Linguistics: its Achievements and its Future
  2. Anita Pomerantz: on some Methodological Issues in Converstion Analysis: Starting and Moving Forward

Registration will open on October 1 and close on October 15, 2015. Please visit the website for more information
