CA Day Archive

The CA Day Archive is a collection of recordings made at Loughborough’s Conversation Analysis Day. Thanks to Dr Andrew J. Merrison who, since attending every CA Day began offering presenters the option to have their talk recorded from 2009. Thanks to his work, the DARGchivists have compiled those recordings and retrieved additional materials from presenters: handouts, slides, papers etc. We are hugely grateful to all of the presenters at CA Day for sharing their fantastic work.

The recordings for which we have received explicit permission to release will be published year every fortnight. Individual years can be navigated to using the links below, or the numbers at the bottom of the page.
