Paper submissions for the 2017 American Sociological Association Annual meeting, to be held in Montreal, Canada, August 12-15, opened on November 1 (see http://www.asanet.org/sites/default/files/17pgm_call_for_papers.pdf). We encourage you to submit a paper or extended abstract for review as soon as possible.
We will hold two types of sessions:
(1) Regular sessions
Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis.*
Organizer: Anne Warfield Rawls, Bentley University
* Note that we had Regular sessions on Conversation Analysis and Ethnomethodology separately in Seattle, 2016, but they appear to have been integrated for next year.
(2) Section sessions
(a) New Directions in Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis Research (one-hour).
Organizer: Aug Nishizaka, Chiba University
(b) Invited Session to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Harold Garfinkel’s Studies in Ethnomethodology and the 25th anniversary of Harvey Sack’s Lectures on Conversation: “The relevance of Garfinkel’s studies for CA research today” with panelists Mike Lynch, Geoffrey Raymond, Eric Livingston, and Johannes Wagner.
Organizer: Ken Liberman, University of Oregon
Although Section session (a) can accommodate only three papers, the more high quality submissions for Regular sessions we receive, the more additional sessions for us we may be able to request. So please do submit and encourage your students and colleagues to submit. The absolute deadline is January 11, 2017, but please consider submitting earlier than that.
