Approaches to Digital Discourse Analysis 1

I’ve just returned from Valencia, Spain, where I attended ADDA1, Approaches to Digital Discourse Analysis. Amber Warren and I presented the final version of our literature review of how conversation analysis methods have been taken up by researchers of online talk. We’ve submitted the final article (co-authored with Jessica Lester) to a journal for publication.

It was fun tweeting behind the scenes (#adda1) and having a chance to hear plenary speakers Susan Herring, Crispin Thurlow, and Jannis Androutsopoulos share their thinking about the future of linguistic approaches to understanding digital discourse. Presentations covered a wide range of digital discourse – from WhatsApp to Twitter to Blackboard Collaborate – from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives.

Valencia is a beautiful city, and I enjoyed exploring the old city and meeting up with old friends from Manresa.

ADDA2 will take place in Charlotte, NC, USA in 2017.
