AWIA symposium 2016

The 13th AWIA symposium will be held at Ghent University from September 29-30 2016!

Anéla Study Group Discourse Analyis (AWIA) and Symposium

The Anéla study group discourse analysis has been established in order to improve the contact between researchers in the field of discourse analysis. AWIA brings together researchers and students studying language use in interaction working with various approaches such as, but not limited to, conversation analysis, interactional sociolinguistics, and critical discourse analysis. Every two years, the study group organizes a two-day symposium.  The goal of this event is twofold; on the one hand, it is an informal and small-scale meeting that brings together scholars and students to get to know each other, and to create an opportunity for discussion and learning; on the other hand, it is an occasion to exchange research interests and topics between humanities and the social sciences.

Each symposium has one guest speaker who plays a central role during the symposium: the first day of the symposium is dedicated to the presentation and discussion of the work of our guest, on the second day the guest speaker is the primary respondent during the discussion of the papers presented by the other participants.

Wyke Stommel is chair of the AWIA association. For questions concerning AWIA (membership), you can send an email to: W.Stommel@let.ru.nl.
