      The second research seminar of the BAAL Special Interest Group on Linguistic
      Ethnography will be held at the University of Wales Conference Centre in
      Gregynog (near Newtown, Powys) on the weekend of April 27-28th, 2002.

      The overall aim of this research seminar will be to extend and further
      develop the dialogue about theory and method in ethnographic research on
      language and literacy initiated in the first seminar in this series at the
      University of Leicester (details of the Leicester seminar are available at
      http://www.baal.org.uk/ling_ethno). This dialogue will be extended and
      developed in three broad ways at Gregynog:

      1. By considering issues of theory and method arising from ethnographic
      research in bilingual and multilingual settings.

      2. By revisiting the notion of ‘genre’ and its use in ethnographic research
      on language and literacy

      3. By exploring links with ethnographic research conducted by other social
      scientists in the UK

      The first theme has been adopted because the seminar is to be held in a
      bilingual context in Wales.

      Further information about this research seminar is available at the
      following website:
