Are we going to do a new list or just will follow up here in XMCA?

  Hi David,
  That makes four! Last call so that we don't interrupt the Rommetveit
discussion. I have a collection of papers that can be shared and read first.

    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.
