Abstract [en]

This article explores the construction of parent–teacher conferences in the Swedish preschool and focuses on processes that construct and maintain these conferences. The analysis draws on an ethnographic study and the empirical material consists of audio taped parent-teacher conferences and observations of everyday activities related to them. By using empirical data from a wider context than the specific speech event, it is possible to gain knowledge about the complexity of the construction of parent-teacher conferences.

Using the concept of a “pocket of local order” it is argued hat parent-teacher conferences are practices, which consist of a large number of activities linked to resources and restrictions that can be interpreted as an imperative to the participants: to conduct talks in preschool and at home, to fill in forms and then use these activities in the conference. In addition, parents, teachers as well as children contribute to the construction and maintenance of the pocket of local order, i.e. activities that can be interpreted as an imperative to the actors in order to reach institutional goals.
