I'll be interested in participating, Phil, as that topic is close to my
dissertation one!

  For the two-dozen or so people to whom I sent a recent paper by Bernstein
(and of course all others), you just might be in Sydney in December and wish
to attend the following three-day workshop!

  Reclaiming Knowledge: Registers of discourse in the community and school.
A workshop this December 13-15 at Sydney University, featuring Christie,
Martin, Maton, Matthiessen, Muller, O'Halloran, Painter, Tyler, Wignell and
Williams as keynote speakers. The organisers are aiming to push along the
dialogue between Bernstein's sociology of education and Systemic Functional
Linguistics (SFL), focussing on the complementary natures of knowledge in
the home, workplace and school.

  For me, I'm still inspired by Panofsky's recent paper and am looking for a
more synthesised approach to understanding the nature of classroom social
interaction. If anyone is interested in an on- or off-list discussion of
vertical and horizontal discourses and the relationship of each to home and
school learning, as well as the discontinuities between them, I'd be
appreciative. Some relevant papers (Panofsky and Daniels) are on the xmca
papers page.
