There are four “keynote panels” during the Working Conference. The “keynote panels” are held in Room 260 Ramseyer with everyone at the conference in attendance. The purpose of the “keynote panels” is to provoke discussion among all members of the conference. Each panel consists of four people who have been invited to respond to a classic article in the field of discourse analysis. Each person may only speak for 10 minutes (no power points are allowed and although they may use notes, no papers may be read). After the panelists have each spoken, they may briefly respond to each other; then the discussion is open to anyone to participate. Panelists have been directed to raise questions for our discussion and consideration as prompted by their reading of the article. (Bibliographic information about each article is provided below).
