Explorations in Ethnography, Language and Communication

Capturing linguistic and cultural diversities

This volume 1)Hållsten, S. and Nikolaidou, Z. (2018) Explorations in Ethnography, Language and Communication: Capturing linguistic and cultural diversities. Stockholm: Elanders. represents a range of work from scholars associated with the Linguistic Ethnography Forum (LEF). LEF is a large, international community of scholars with an interest in drawing on and combining theoretical and methodological approaches from linguistics and ethnography. As an organisation, LEF can be traced back to a small seminar in Leicester in 2001, funded by the British Association for Applied Linguistics (BAAL) and Cambridge University Press, which brought together 30 academics and research students to identify key theoretical and methodological issues in linguistic ethnography. From that initial meeting, an email list was set up and a committee formed to explore the possibility of organising future events and facilitating this ongoing conversation.
