Dear discourseanalysis.net user,
On 15/07/2019, we announced that DiscourseNet is becoming an association (see link below). The members of our community are now being informed and consulted through a survey which you should have received on 07/08/2019. We hope that you will find the time to react and share your ideas with us. If you did not get a personal survey invitation on that day (from J. Angermuller) or if your link no longer works, we invite you to use this generic link: https://warwickappling.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3EjmhY5HyOh5vnv Also, we encourage you to help circulate this survey link in your networks and email lists.
We are now starting to discuss how candidates can stand for the election during the DiscourseNet General Assembly on 14/09/2019 in Paris (http://dnc3aled.discourseanalysis.net). If you are interested in getting involved in the DiscourseNet Steering Group, the Board, the Scientific Council or in other activities, we invite you 1) to fill out the DiscourseNet survey as soon as possible, 2) to get in touch with a member of the Board and discuss your ideas and 3) join our open Skype conference on 07/09/2019 at 1-2pm Continental European Summer Time. You will need to communicate your skype name, your questions and your preferred language to Jaspal Singh (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 06/09/2019. Jaspal is going to set up and chair the skype conference.
We also invite you to react to the draft of the founding documents for the new DiscourseNet Association, which include a general presentation, the operational guidelines, the budget situation and the legal statutes: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BKtW4gXx5dcJtGCgAco9aavE5Y1RUkyCScTPul6YN40/edit.
The latest news will be posted on http://www.discourseanalysis.net/DN, where you will also find candidate profiles and information on elections and decisions when they are available.
