The LISO conference promotes interdisciplinary research and discussion in the analysis of naturally occurring human interaction. Papers will be presented by national and international scholars on a variety of topics in the study of language, interaction, and culture.

This year’s conference theme is “Disrupt and Advance.” We understand ‘disrupt’ broadly as actions or ideas that intervene in or challenge the established theoretical, institutional, or narrative frame. The emphasis on disruption is an intentional examination of disciplinary constraints. By including ‘advance’ we hope to encourage submissions that operationalize critique into praxis. We welcome papers that engage in a critique of disciplinary conventions or somehow broaden the scope of (inter)disciplinary research, presenting innovative models for paths forward.
