Welcome to another great year of data sessions and reading groups.
Keep an eye out for calls for abstracts. We are hoping to conduct a symposium on the 2nd of June this year. It will be directed more toward PhD candidates and early career academics, but that may change. Watch this space.
Please get in contact with the AIEMCA google group for mail outs (contact email@example.com)
For TAG’s first session, we will meet at USQ Ipswich campus. We will also push this meeting out via ZOOM. If you’re interested in Zooming in, please contact the TAG secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org).
the session will be held:
24th February, 1:30pm Ipswich time.
See you there

Some photos from the first day at AIEMCA 2016.
The wine/beer in the secret garden was simply splendid. Such a nice spot hidden away from the rest of the campus.
The final shots are from the book launch, and Rod Gardner’s glowing review of it. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.
The registration will begin at:
1pm on the 2nd floor of the Kwong Lee Dow Building, 234 Queensberry Street, The University of Melbourne.
The program, times, dates etc. are all available in the “conferences” tab at the top of the AIEMCA.org page.
See you there
Final program now available in the 2016 Conference listing, with maps and transport to the University of Melbourne, and links to local guides.
Looking forward to meeting up in Melbourne Wednesday 30 November!
A reminder that presenters for the 2016 AIEMCA Conference to be held 30 November – 2 December at the University of Melbourne must register by 1 October 2016.
Day registrations available until early November, so encourage your colleagues and students to join the conference – all will be welcome!
(please forward this onto anyone interested in CA, MCA, EM, DA, interactional pragmatics etc.)
I am posting this to inform you all of the special event on the 23rd of September.
There will be a series of data sessions (2) and a discussion panel as well. We will make these available via ZOOM (a web-based meeting program) so you can link in from different sites.
If there are several people near you that are interested in ZOOM-ing in, please contact me (email@example.com) or the Transcript analysis group (respond to this email) so we can organise things (email out transcripts etc.)
Susan has kindly offered QUT as the source site. That means that we can run data sessions through b426 (the normal room, I think that’s the number). If you’re nearby, you’re welcome to attend at that venue.
We have checked to see if ZOOM works (last TAG) and it seems quite stable, but there are some microphone issues. We will try to rectify this with a better microphone. But, if you are having trouble hearing the talk at times, please be sure to use headphones.
We are proposing that we run like this:
Data Session (10-11:30) Ann or Emma
Discussion session (12:30-2) Rod
Data Session (2:30-4) Ann or Emma
(Please note, these are Brisbane times)
The data discussion will be centred around the recent “Epistemic Challenge” from Discourse Studies. Here is a short abstract from Rod Gardner:
I’m sure some of you have seen (and even read) the recent papers published online in Discourse Studies, by Doug Macbeth, Michael Lynch, Jean Wong among others. They raise some what I think are crucial questions about the ‘Epistemic Program’ in CA. It made me think that we could have a special TAG session to discuss the papers.
If you go to the DS website, search for authors: Michael Lynch, Douglas Macbeth, Oskar Lindwall and Jacob Steensig, and you should find the papers. They have all been published in the last issue of Discourse Studies, so they’re ready for you to access.
This discussion session will be specifically oriented to these papers and the issues they raise.
Please access the papers through your Library’s database, and bring your ideas to the discussion on the 23rd Sept.
I will be at the event so I should be able to help with technical difficulties.
