Announcing the publication of a Special Issue of Australian Journal of Communication 40 (2): Selected papers from the 2012 Biennial Conference of the Australasian Institute of Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis.
The issue also includes a memoriam for Mark Rapley, one of the founders of AIEMCA, by Alec McHoul.
For the first time, AJC also has two features of interest for the EM/CA/MCA and wider discourse analysis and linguistics communities.
First, the issue is offered online with totally free open access.
Second, several papers include embedded video or audio of interaction, linked to transcripts. This allows research to move away from the limitations of traditional print publication of short text-only transcripts and limited greyscale photographs and closer towards the fields’ ideal of fully inspectable data.
We thank all the contributors to the issue and those who presented at and attended the conference.
