Call for submissions for the Special Issue: 

Conversation Analysis in Brazil and talk-in-interaction in Portuguese 

Guest Editors: 

Ana Cristina Ostermann (Unisinos, CNPq) & Pedro de Moraes Garcez (UFRGS, CNPq)


Call for papers - vol 19, nº 2 (May/August)

Deadline for submissions: 31 January, 2021

It has been now almost 20 years since the first studies of social interaction embracing the ethnometodological approach of Conversation Analysis (CA) were published by Brazilian scholars (e.g. Garcez, 2002; Gago, 2003; Ostermann, 2003) featuring Portuguese as a language of interaction. Whereas the field of Conversation Analysis has been rapidly expanding, publications focusing on social interactions in Brazilian settings or in Portuguese are still comparatively scarce.

This Special Issue of Calidoscópio grows out as a development of the 2017 AILA symposium “Innovations and challenges in Conversation Analysis” (Ostermann, 2017), which discussed the most recent developments and challenges in the Conversation Analysis field by bringing together researchers from a variety of countries and research interests in what concerns social interaction, among them, Lorenza Mondada, Marja-Leena Sorjonen, and Johannes Wagner. During that symposium, the Guest Editors of this special issue (also contributors to the panel), Ana Cristina Ostermann and Pedro de Moraes Garcez, presented an overview of the development of CA research in Brazil. Among a number of challenges they discussed were the applied linguistics agenda of CA studies in the Brazilian context, and the double bind Brazilian conversation analysts work in – i.e. addressing issues that are relevant to practitioners in the fields of activity where the talk-in-interactional data they study takes place while also creating and cultivating a discursive arena for their work within the discipline.

In an attempt to foster a more encompassing overview of the development of the field that goes beyond the Brazilian context, this Special Issue welcomes submissions of original studies that investigate social interactions from an ethnomethodological conversation analytic perspective (including papers within the scope of Interactional Linguistics) in any interactional setting in Brazil or featuring Portuguese as a language of interaction. Submissions – either in Portuguese or English – should follow the Calidoscópio guidelines for authors and use the submission model available at this link and be done directly on the journal website between November 1st, 2020 and January 31, 2021.
