The Digital Meeting in Conversation Analysis (DMCA) will take place from October 31st until November 4th 2022. This online event will provide an accessible environment for the global EMCA community to present their research, build their academic network, and develop their skills in EMCA methods. There will panels on publishing, grant writing, and careers in academia, as well as workshops on a range of topics and, of course, presentations from researchers in all areas of the field.  DMCA will also involve a range of online social event formats so that everyone can catch up with colleagues and make new connections.

The conference will consist of two streams taking place in tandem: one for the EMCA community in Oceania and East Asia, and one for the community in the Americas, Europe, and Africa.

More information such as the leaders and content of the workshops, plenaries, and a call for papers will be shared in January 2022.

CA in Brazil and talk-in-interaction in Portuguese

We are thrilled to announce the release of the first special issue dedicated to CA research with data in Portuguese. The special issue, published in Calidoscópio, celebrates 20 years of CA as a research branch in the lusophone world, emphasizing the research work developed mainly in Brazil. Ana Cristina Ostermann (Unisinos, Brazil) and Pedro de Moraes Garcez (UFRGS, Brazil), two pioneers of CA in the Brazilian landscape, nicely present an overview of how the area evolved over these past 20 years and provide a fair portrait of the current state of Portuguese-based CA studies. The interactional contexts contemplated in the issue vary, ranging from health institutions to the streets of Rio de Janeiro, and from scholars based in Brazil, Portugal, Finland, and Switzerland.

This is most certainly a very welcome and timely contribution to the expansion of CA studies worldwide.
