18th June 2019 - John Heritage on "Talk Matters" at York University:
An Open Lecture by John Heritage, PhD FAcSS Distinguished Research Professor of Sociology, UCLA
Hosted by the Language & Social Interaction Research Cluster Department of Sociology, University of York
One of the more surprising developments in sociology during recent decades has been the success of the ultra-microsociological field of conversation analysis (CA). As its name implies, this field focuses on how people talk in conversation and other forms of interaction, and it does so in fine detail. The field was invented in my Department at UCLA, and has since become a widespread approach to research on social interaction and commmunication, practiced worldwide and prominently here at the University of York. The success of this field has two sources: its contribution to solving basic problems in the social sciences, and its use as a resource in solving applied problems in many walks of life. This talk describes some of the basic problems, as well as some applications of CA in the everyday worlds of law, medicine and politics.
Date: 18 June 2019 Time: Drinks and snacks from 5pm. Talk to start at 6pm. Place: Bowland Auditorium, Berrick Saul Building, University of York (Campus West). See: https://www.york.ac.uk/about/maps/ for maps and directions.
