The conference was first inspired by a research training programme previously run at King’s College London and the IOE, UCL. The first event took place in 2008 at Aston University to offer further opportunities to exchange knowledge around ethnography, language and communication.
The theme of this 9th edition of the conference in London is: ‘Language, inequality and the everyday (un)making of alliances’. It follows a series of global crises epitomised by moments of spectacular disruption such as the so-called ‘2008 economic crisis’ or the ‘COVID-19 pandemic’. But far from representing isolated events, these build on long-standing processes, practices and experiences of inequality which are increasingly at the centre of more and more people’s daily lives.
The conference aims to provide a platform to reflect on the types of alliances that ethnographic and language scholarship might be able to generate in the (un)making of such inequalities.
The event will include individual papers, colloquia and featured data analysis workshops. Paper presenters will be allowed 20 minutes, with a further 10 minutes for discussion.
Note: Registrations for the event and call for papers will open in due course.
This event will be particularly useful for those interested in linguistic ethnography, linguistic anthropology, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics.
