Updated ASA schedule

Dear EMCA community,

Thanks to John Heritage and Tanya Stivers's lobbying efforts, we have been able to change the Conversation Analysis session from 8:30 on Sunday morning to 2:30pm later that day.  Now there is no more overlap in our sessions, which is wonderful news.
Please check out our updated Summer 2013 newsletter and print out page 10, which now has the correct schedule (thanks, as always to Laura for the quick turn around!). We look forward to seeing you all soon.

Summer 2013 Newsletter!

Dear EMCA community,

Welcome to the Summer 2013 newsletter of the Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis Section.  With the ASA meeting next month, this newsletter naturally focuses on that event where we hope to see many of you in person.  Specifically, note the ASA EMCA schedule, which you should print and bring to the ASA as a handy one page guide of where you should be at what time!  There are 8 sessions. Unfortunately, there are two sessions at the same time.  We urged the ASA to change that but, sadly, we were unsuccessful.

Note that the Business Meeting will be held on Monday, August at 9:30am where we will be presenting the various awards.  You can see who won the awards in this newsletter.  We are grateful for all the committees for their hard work.  Our Social is on Saturday night from 6:30-9:00pm; please come and join us in Rosie O'Grady's. We are continuing the short bios from graduate students
in the field.  In this newsletter, we thought it would be nice to highlight some of the graduate students who are presenting at ASA next month.  If you know graduate students who would like to present themselves in the newsletter, please e-mail us.

Thanks to Laura Loeb for editing the newsletter (she will be presenting at the ASA meeting, so make sure you tell her how much you like the new look).
