 Reflexivity and Positionality in Linguistic Ethnography

 an event for PhD students and ECRs supported by the Linguistic Ethnography Forum

 University of the West of England, Bristol

3rd June 2019, 9.00am – 4.30pm

                                                Dr Frances Giampapa, University of Bristol

                                                Dr Erin Moriarty-Harrelson, Heriot-Watt University

The event is aimed at doctoral students and early career researchers engaged in any kind of linguistic ethnographic research. Throughout the day, we invite participants to reflect on how insider/outsider positioning, and researcher identit(y/ies) manifests in, and affects, their own linguistic ethnographic research projects.  Participants will have the opportunity to hear other linguistic ethnographers (both early career and more established) talk about and reflect on their own research experiences, to take part in group-based data sessions exploring how data revealing identity work might be engaged with, and to ask questions and exchange perspectives and experiences through a final panel session.

Registration Fees:

Full rate – £45 (£25 for PhD students) if registering on or after 24 April 2019

Up to 10 LEF bursaries will be available to cover registration fees for participants without access to institutional funding – there are some bursary places still available
