I got your address from ethno/CA news on the world wide web.
I am organising a session on "Language and Law" in the World Congress of
Sociology, to be held in Montreal next July.
I am interested in including papers from a range of traditions including
conversation analysis and ethnomethodology, the ethnography of
communication, critical discourse analysis and mainstream sociolinguistics.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in giving a paper, could
you ask them to send me abstracts by 31st November?
I have attached a general call for papers for the sociolinguistics sessions
which might also be of interest. Do you know of any lists we could use
to publicise these to people with sociolinguistic interests?
Thanks for your help.
