Location: a public location (at a conference during a break?).

Context: one of a series of interviews referred to on p. [iii] of Phillipson, R. 1992. Linguistic Imperialism. Oxford: Oxford University Press. Peter Strevens (referred to in the interview) had been interviewed the previous day; Bernard Lott (also referred to) was interviewed earlier or later the same day.

Discussion focuses on a series of questions or headings apparently provided to the interviewee in advance (we don't have a copy of this).
