A través de INFOLING me llega esta información sobre el International Symposium: New Insights into the Study of Conversation. Applications to the Language Classroom que se celebrará en la Universidad de Granada entre el 26 y el 28 de mayo del año próximo. El texto de presentación dice así:

Approaches to conversation in language teaching are currently in a state of change, as is natural when any discipline is undergoing so much theoretical and procedural revision. One change may have taken place in recent conceptual frameworks within the field, which now view conversation as a much more complex phenomenon than was previously thought. The evolution of conversation in language teaching has gone from the communicative approach, whose main aim is to make learners engage in oral interaction fluently and creatively through the so-called communicative activities, to a more input-based approach which bears upon other academic domains such as conversation analysis, speech act theory, politeness, discourse analysis, context-theory, nonverbal communication, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, the grammar of spoken language, pragmatic phonology. (…) The integration of related disciplines to enlighten the complexity of oral interaction and its consequent classroom procedures would seem to be one way of moving forward and solving this dilemma. Moreover, a rigorous exploration of these related areas of study might contribute to a more comprehensive and interdisciplinary statement into the nature of conversational competence and, on the other hand, it attempts to discuss current research into the issues and problems that have arisen in learning and teaching conversation.

Se pueden enviar propuestas de comunicaciones y de posters hasta el 28 de Febrero. La inscripción está abierta hasta el 30 de abril. Toda la información sobre precios, alojamiento, etc. se puede encontrar en la web del simposio. El Simposio contará, además, con varias conferencias plenarias a cargo de autores tan conocidos como Gabriele Kasper o Paul Seedhouse. Está prevista la publicación de un libro con una selección de las contribuciones al congreso.
