Activity: Participating in or organising an eventWorkshopAcademic


Conversation analysis (CA) is used in the scientific study of social interaction, ranging from mundane to institutional settings. CA is used to examine how people accomplish social activities through the use of talk and other semiotic resources (including the non-verbal). CA studies range from basic work on the fundamentals of human interaction, to applied research aimed at contributing to service improvement. -

- What does this workshop cover?

The 3-day workshop will provide an overview of advanced topics in CA research as well as key prospects and problems in CA methodology. The workshop aims to build on the skills that participants already have in CA methods of analysis.

- How is the workshop structured?

This workshop will run from 1pm to 6pm on the first day and then 9am-6pm on the second day, and 9am-5pm on the third day.

Short presentations by the facilitators will cover advanced aspects of CA and its applications to various areas of inquiry. Most of the workshop will be dedicated to practical sessions and hands-on analytic work. Participants will work in small groups on data provided by the facilitators. They will identify an original phenomenon and will share their findings in a short, informal group presentation towards the end of the workshop. The analytic work will be supported by the facilitators.
