7th biennial conference of the Linguistic Ethnography Forum, hosted by the Moray House School of Education at the University of Edinburgh.
This year’s theme takes in Brexit, Trump and ‘this country’s had enough of experts’ to ask … what role should LE research play in this changing world? What are the questions it should seek to answer, and how can it make a distinctive contribution to the national debate?
EELC conferences aim to:
- Provide a dedicated cross-disciplinary forum for researchers who combine ethnographic and linguistic approaches,
- Facilitate high quality debate on contemporary issues across health, education, social policy and cultural studies,
- Establish a stimulating programme combining plenary lectures, data workshops, oral and poster presentations,
- Facilitate international dialogue between Linguistic Ethnography in Europe and US linguistic anthropology.
