Call for papers for the 7th Nordic Interdisciplinary Conference on Discourse and Interaction (NORDISCO) conference is now open!

NORDISCO 7 will be organized as an onsite event in November 15-17, 2023, at Tampere University by the Faculties of Social Sciences and Information Technology and Communication.

More information and abstract submission guidelines at:

NORDISCO focuses on discourse and interaction research and invites contributions from different and diverse fields of inquiry including conversation analysis, discursive psychology, narrative analysis, applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, textual studies, gesture studies, rhetoric, political discourse analysis, multimodal interaction analysis, communication studies, organization studies, and more.


The field of discourse and interaction research lends itself to interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange, as it explores the relations between text and talk on the one hand, and societal, cultural and psychological contexts on the other. An important aim of this conference is to gather researchers and doctoral students from different traditions in order to facilitate interdisciplinary discussion and collaboration.


We are proud to announce the following plenary speakers:

Brian Due, Associate professor, University of Copenhagen

Sari Pietikäinen, Professor, University of Jyväskylä

Andreas Ventsel, Associate professor, Tartu University

Sally Wiggins, Professor, Linköping University


Welcome All!
