NORDISCO, the 6th Nordic Interdisciplinary Conference on Discourse and Interaction

Department of Education, Uppsala University, Sweden, November 18-20, 2020


We are following the development of the covid-19 disease and the related decisions and recommendations made by public authorities. Our hope is that the conference will take place as planned in Uppsala in November, but the final decision will be announced in early September. In the event of cancellation, the conference will take place in 2021 instead.


The conference focuses on discourse and interaction research and invites contributions from different and diverse fields of inquiry including conversation analysis, discursive psychology, narrative analysis, applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, textual studies, gesture studies, rhetoric, political discourse analysis, multimodal interaction analysis, communication studies, organization studies, and more.

The field of discourse and interaction research lends itself to interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange, as it explores the relations between text and talk on the one hand, and societal, cultural and psychological contexts on the other. An important aim of this conference is to gather researchers and doctoral students from different traditions in order to facilitate interdisciplinary discussion and collaboration.
