All meetings will take place in the John Percival Building at Cardiff University (Room 3.66) at 4.30 – 5.30pm (with optional discussion continuing for those who are able to stay, until 6pm).

At our first meeting it was agreed that future meetings should take place at approx. 3 week/1 month intervals.  In the autumn term therefore, sessions will be as follows:

Date (all 2018) Topic/Title Session leader
24th October Why ethnography? Introducing linguistic ethnography Judith Reynolds and Piotr Wegorowski (both Cardiff University)

For the spring 2019 term, a number of ideas for topics were put forward and we will cover as many of these as we can (firm schedule to be drawn up by the start of 2019):

  • Data session (sharing and joint exploration of data from an LE project)
  • Ethics in linguistic ethnography
  • Researching identity using linguistic ethnography
  • Writing and using fieldnotes
  • What constitutes ‘data’ in LE?
  • LE and studying multimodality
  • Online linguistic ethnography
