Last June, I visited University of Murcia in Murcia, Spain to present my analysis in the conference, “Sociolinguistics Symposium 21”. Sociolinguistics Symposium is one of the biggest international conferences on language in society, and over a thousand delegates from various disciplines in sociolinguistics presented their interesting studies this year. I gave a presentation entitled “Marriage immigrants in South Korea: A CA perspective on situated identities and multimodality in interview accounts” on 15th, June. Also my colleague, Kirsty Blewitt (3rd year PhD candidate in Applied Linguistics) presented her paper entitled, “Exploring interactions between the state and the individual in legal settings” on the same day. We both enjoyed thought-provoking discussion in the conference, as well as the great weather and atmosphere in the city!
