All interested scholars are cordially invited to participate in ICCA-06, to be organized in Helsinki May 10–14, 2006.
ICCA-06 is an international multidisciplinary meeting on conversation analysis. It brings together researchers of language, culture and society from different parts of the world. It aims at sharing the latest research, promoting co-operation among researchers, and discussing new openings in the quickly developing field of conversational studies. As Finland is one of the places where conversation analysis has been strongly promoted for the past two decades, we are also proud to widely present the latest Finnish developments in the field.
The theme of the conference: Comparative Perspectives in Conversation Analysis
Comparative research can encompass e.g. comparison of interactional practices in everyday versus institutional talk, in different kinds of institutional encounters, different languages and cultures, and different varieties of a language.
