The Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics (GURT) conference:


Details:

The Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics (GURT) conference will be held on March 9-11, 2018. The GURT 2018 theme is Approaches to Discourse.

Discourse analysis, or the study of language in use or language “beyond the sentence,” has long been recognized in linguistics as one of its most expansive, yet least defined, areas. It also transcends the field, fitting comfortably in disciplines as varied as communication studies, anthropology, sociology, and education (among many others). GURT 2018 will bring together leading researchers from around the world and from various disciplines to take stock of current research and foster communication across approaches to discourse. Plenary speakers include Donal Carbaugh (University of Massachusetts, Amherst), John Heritage (University of California, Los Angeles), Susan Philips (University of Arizona), Jürgen Streeck (The University of Texas at Austin), Deborah Tannen (Georgetown University), and Ruth Wodak (Lancaster University).

GURT 2018 invites proposals for individual papers, posters, and colloquia from various approaches to discourse analysis that address any of the field’s diverse topical and theoretical foci, types and sources of data, methodological questions, and practical applications. The submission deadline is October 31, 2017. More information about the conference, including submission guidelines, can be found here: https://gurt.georgetown.edu/GURT2018
