IADA 2004 - Chicago

Exciting Chicago

Location:          Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago, Illinois, USA

Dates:              March 30-April 3, 2004


The study of dialogue analysis has benefited a great deal from the contributions of many different disciplines, such as linguistics, philosophy, anthropology, and sociology. The productivity of this variety of input can be seen in the several methodological traditions, including a speech act theoretic approach to dialogue, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, among others.  Indeed, in recent years, presentations given at the various conferences of the International Association for Dialogue Analysis have made use of various theoretical approaches. While the diversity of the multiple disciplines, traditions, and scholars does not lend itself to a single, simple theory of dialogue analysis, the richness of interdisciplinary approaches adds to a deeper understanding of the complex nature of dialogic interaction.

In the upcoming workshop, approximately 40 international scholars will present their work on the theme of “Theoretical Approaches to Dialogue Analysis” over the course of four days in the spring of 2004.  The workshop will begin on a Tuesday evening with an opening plenary and run until Saturday morning with a closing plenary.  Individual presentations will last 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions and answers.  Presentations are arranged consecutively (i.e., workshop style) to give all participants the opportunity to hear and discuss the different theoretical and methodological trends in dialogue analysis.
