This is exciting!
The conference theme this year is New Frontiers in Public Opinion Research, and now we can get a first glimpse at AAPOR’s take on the future of the field! There are quite a few sessions on web survey design, paradata, alternative data sources, and the potential of social media. It will be interesting to see which of the sessions will have a sociolinguistic bent, because many certainly have that potential. There are also sessions on interviewer effects and context effects, which may even use Conversation Analysis (CA) approaches.
