Interactional Competences and Practices in a Second Language (ICOP-L2)

The Second International Conference on Interactional Competences and Practices in a Second Language (ICOP-L2). Mälardalen University, Västerås, Sweden, 29–31 May 2019.

Interactional practices in second and additional languages (L2s) have increasingly been researched in language classrooms and other institutional settings as well as in non-institutional contexts that include practices of ‘learning in the wild’. Principles of ethnomethodology, conversation analysis, membership categorization analysis, and usage-based linguistics have equipped researchers with tools to investigate how users of L2s engage in sense making practices, and how they learn and teach in interaction. This social and qualitative trend in L2 interaction research has also fuelled a growing body of studies into interactional competence.


The 2019 Conference of the International Institute for Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis (IIEMCA) will be held in Mannheim (Germany), from July 2–5. The conference theme is “Practices”

Plenary speakers are: Christian Heath – John Heritage – Christian Meyer – Lorenza Mondada – Elizabeth Stokoe
