NB: as of 2019 This website is being decommissioned. Expect a new ISCA website to launch in early 2020. Until then, this website is unlikely to be updated, although it will still process memberships temporarily. Please refer to our twitter account: @iscaupdates for any urgent news while we are developing our new web presence.

The International Society for Conversation Analysis (ISCA) is an independent faculty-and-student-based professional association in higher education, designed to serve the needs of scholars of language and social interaction across a variety of disciplines and applications.  Founded in 2010, the Society seeks to provide its members with resources to advance the field by circulating findings, creating better courses, strengthening research, and creating a collective voice for the development and application of professional findings.

A major aim of ISCA is to encourage and enhance interdisciplinary research into the structure and dynamics of social interaction through the creation of a multi-disciplinary community of scholars. From its beginning, the organization has been committed to the notion that broad advances in the understanding of social interaction require disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to research and learning.
