The 25th Annual Conference on Language, Interaction, and Social Organization

University of California, Santa Barbara

  • May 17-18, 2019
  • “Disrupt and Advance”
  • PLENARY SPEAKERS: TBD

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. This year’s conference theme is “Disrupt and Advance.” We understand ‘disrupt’ broadly as actions or ideas that intervene in or challenge the established theoretical, institutional, or narrative frame. The emphasis on disruption is an intentional examination of disciplinary constraints. By including ‘advance’ we hope to encourage submissions that operationalize critique into praxis. We welcome papers that engage in a critique of disciplinary conventions or somehow broaden the scope of (inter)disciplinary research, presenting innovative models for paths forward.

We seek proposals for 20-minute paper presentations which address the conference theme as they relate to any of the following topics (see list below). While submissions based on the conference theme will be particularly welcome, innovative work on all aspects of language and interaction will be considered.

  • Cross-disciplinary perspectives
  • Ethics and research
  • Language acquisition
  • Language and class, (dis)ability, race/ethnicity, gender/sexuality and age
  • Language and education
  • Language and media
  • Language policy and practice
  • Meta-commentary on disciplinary frameworks
  • Multilingualism and cross-/intercultural communication
  • Non-dominant epistemologies
  • Political discourse, discussions of power
  • Politically-engaged scholarship
