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

Department of Education, Uppsala University, Sweden, November 17-19, 2021



Due to the uncertainties surrounding the development of the covid-19 disease with meeting and travel restrictions, we, the organizing committee in collaboration with Uppsala University, have taken the decision to postpone this year’s conference. As previously announced, the conference will take place in 2021 instead, and the dates have been set to November 17-19.


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.
