Members page added

The members page from the legacy AIEMCA site has been transposed across to the new AIEMCA page. Users familiar with the previous site will note that biographical content hasn’t come across with the page. Individual members can have links to their biographical information on university or personal webpages. To update your information please email If you’re not a member yet and you would like to be email us a short (one paragraph) biography including your research interests and publications (if any) in the field.

Also thanks again to Alec McHoul and all his hard work on the previous website, hopefully by now revelling in his hard earned semi-retirement.

Members can also advertise their EM/CA publications through the website. Email us with the abstract and link to the publication and we will include your article on the monthly list of AIEMCA member publications.

AIEMCA Forum now open for business

I’ve created a new forum for the AIEMCA website. The forum is designed for academics, students and the general public to discuss themes and ideas in Conversation Analysis and Ethnomethodology. The forum is open to anyone with an interest in EM/CA and is focused on building links within the Australian EM/CA/DP community.

You’ll find a link to the forum on the left bar or click on this link .

Under construction

The Australian Institute for Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis (AIEMCA) is in the process of migrating from the legacy website.

The Australian Institute for Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis was formed on 3rd September 2001 as a joint initiative of the Australian delegates at the July 2001 meetings of the International Institute for Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis in Manchester (UK).

Its purpose is to bring together researchers in the fields of EM and CA across Australia, to share news and events and to organise meetings, symposia and conferences.

Possible phd studentship

Diamantina Institute are looking for expressions of interest for a PhD (CA,EM,MCA) to be part of a project which is getting together to examine science work – or the work of scientists.

We have access to a major research institute who are more than keen to have social science researchers look at what they do. This could be a fantastic opportunity for some really good emca work, so at this stage we need to put things in place. So we are informally scouting for someone who is eligible for an APA studentship (they would need to go through the application to UQ) to be part of the project. Attached is a short description of what it is we are looking for.
