LANSI 2021:



Dear Colleagues:

After receiving multiple inquiries regarding whether we would consider a remote conference this year given COVID-19, our organizing committee has reached the difficult decision early this morning that a zoom conference would be the antithesis of LANSI's trademark of enabling deep conversations in an intimate environment. Our plan, instead, is to postpone the conference till late May 2021 (specific dates TBA: mostly likely 22-23 or 28-29). With that, we would also extend the deadline for our CfP to Dec. 31, 2020--the final day of this very, very unusual year .

We hope we're making the right call, and we're hopeful that this will be a conference worth waiting for. It's our 10th anniversary after all.🎈

Till we see each other again--in our full dimensions,



The 10th annual meeting of

The Language and Social Interaction Working Group(LANSI)

Teachers College, Columbia University

LANSI brings together scholars and students working on naturally-occurring data within the broad area of language and social interaction. In keeping with the LANSI spirit of diversity and dialog, we welcome abstracts from colleagues working on a variety of topics using discourse analytic approaches that include but are not limited to conversation analysis, interactional sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, and critical discourse analysis. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and should include descriptions of the following aspects of the study: (1) problem(s) being addressed; (2) central claim(s); (3) data source(s) and analytic approach(es); (4) a short piece of data to support the main argument; (5) implication(s) of the findings. Please also include a 50-word summary. Abstracts will be blind-reviewed on the basis of clarity, specificity, originality, and the inclusion of the required components. Papers will be presented within a 15-minute slot with an additional 5 minutes for discussion.

Deadline for electronic submission is June 1, 2020. Notification of acceptance or non-acceptance will be sent via email by July 15, 2020. For additional information and to submit an abstract, please visit:
