Rutgers’ Conversation Analysis Faculty are organizing a meeting for academics interested in conversation analytic (CA) methods. The goal is to bring together researchers in conversation analysis who are focused on core issues in CA, broadly related to action formation, to cross-fertilize ideas. There will be an emphasis on focused data sessions as well as papers.

The symposium will be held on Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th June, 2020, and will be preceded by 5 days of Core Skills workshops on Friday 12th -Tuesday 16th.

We are proud to announce that we have agreement from two plenary speakers, John Heritage, and Geoffrey Raymond.

We welcome submissions for oral presentations of work in progress or recently completed studies. The slot is 30 minutes – 20 minutes for a talk and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. We also welcome submissions to host small group data sessions working with video or audio-recordings and CA transcripts. The data sessions will be 90 minute slots. 

Please submit your proposals for oral presentations or data sessions using the format below. The deadline for all submissions is Friday 31st January 2020. The cost for registering will be $100 for Faculty, $50 for students.
