CFP Groningen Symposium on Language and Social Interaction (Netherlands)

Groningen Symposium on Language and Social Interaction

The second Groningen Symposium on Language and Social Interaction (GSLI) will be organized by the University of Groningen, Center for Language and Cognition on January 22, 2016. The theme of this year’s symposium is ‘Interaction and Health Care’. The symposium aims to bring together scholars interested in interaction in health care settings between clients and health care professionals. The symposium aims to cover a wide range of different health care settings ( e.g. consultations between general practitioners and patients, therapeutic interactions, clinic visits, etc.). The common ground is that all contributions focus on the ways health care professionals and clients collaboratively shape and organize their medical activities and tasks through interaction.

GSLI is glad to announce that Ruth Parry (University of Nottingham) has accepted our invitation as keynote speaker of the Symposium.
