2018 call for submissions for the ASA EMCA section

Dear Colleagues,

Paper submissions for the 2018 American Sociological Association Annual meeting, to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, August 11-14, are now open. We encourage you to submit a paper or extended abstract for review. Note that the submission system will close at 11:59 p.m. Eastern, on January 11, 2018.

We will hold two types of sessions:
(1) Regular sessions
Conversation Analysis and Ethnomethodology.
Organizer: Douglas W. Maynard, University of Wisconsin, Madison

(2) Section sessions
(a) New Directions in Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis Research (one-hour).
Organizer: Ken Liberman, University of Oregon
(b) Research in Conversation Analysis.
Organizer: Ken Liberman, University of Oregon
(c) Research in Ethnomethodology
Organizer: Ken Liberman, University of Oregon

Section session (a) can accommodate only two or three papers (due to our business meeting). Section sections (b) & (c) are normal ones. 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, 2018, but please consider submitting earlier than that, so that reviewers can begin the consideration of papers during the seasonal break.

The following URL includes instructions for submission:

Douglas W. Maynard (Regular session organizer);
Kenneth Liberman ( and Aug Nishizaka (EMCA section co-chairs)
