Advanced Topics in Conversation Analysis. 23rd - 25th March 2016 28 October 2015 A workshop led by Paul Drew & John Heritage

Department of Social Sciences, Loughborough University, UK

This workshop, to be held in the Department of Social Sciences at Loughborough University, will focus on what are emerging as some of the key themes or topics in contemporary Conversation Analysis (CA). These will include action construction, questioning and responding to questions, the design of turn beginnings (turn initial components), and recruiting the assistance of others (recruitment fuses offering and requesting into a stream of embodied action associated with seeking or providing assistance).

In a departure from our previous workshops, there will be greater engagement with face-to-face interaction, with embodied action (multimodality). There will be a mixture of lectures and ‘instructional assignments’, but with plenty of time for hands-on practical work with data, in ways that will be methodologically informative (for instance, gaining experience in working with data.

This workshop will suit researchers with different degrees of experience with CA, i.e. those who are just beginning to use CA in their research, to those who are more experienced and would like to enhance their CA skills and catch up with the latest research. Hence it will suit equally doctoral, postdoctoral and other researchers.

The number of participants will be restricted in order to give us as much time as possible to work on each individual’s data (an entire morning or afternoon session). The programme will be planned so as to give you as much time as possible to present and discuss your work, and to provide ample opportunity for discussion, feedback and advice.


Registration

The cost of the workshop is £180 (full rate for salaried researchers/faculty) or £100 for postgraduate students. This charge has been kept to a minimum, to make it affordable, and covers (buffet) lunches and mid-morning and mid-afternoon refreshments, together with one dinner together (on the middle evening). It does not include accommodation, which can be found on campus or in local hotels.

Because of the limitation on the number of participants, registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis; so early registration is advised. To register, please email Paul Drew right away! - p.drew@lboro.ac.uk
