Groningen Symposium on Language and social Interaction: ‘Survey Interview Interaction’:
The third Groningen Symposium on Language and Social Interaction (GSLI) will be organized by the University of Groningen, Center for Language and Cognition on January 19 and 20, 2017. The theme of this year’s symposium is ‘Survey Interview Interaction’. The symposium aims to bring together scholars interested in interaction in survey interviews, including interviewer-respondent and virtual agent-respondent interaction. The symposium aims to cover both qualitative and quantitative analysis of survey interview-interactions. The symposium is organized to honor Wil Dijkstra and Hanneke Houtkoop-Steenstra (1950-2002), two Dutch scholars that have studied interviewer-respondent interaction from different perspectives. Wil Dijkstra, with a background in psychology, is the creator of the Sequence Viewer program. This program allows for systematic coding and analysing of verbal and non-verbal behavior. Hanneke Houtkoop-Steenstra, who unfortunately is no longer with us since 2002, used CA (conversation analysis), i.e. a qualitative method to study survey interview interactions. In her work the tension between standardized rules and conversational practices play a central role.
Keynote speakers are Fred Conrad (University of Michigan), Nora Cate Schaeffer (University of Wisconsin) and Wil Dijkstra (who will be presenting on Sequence Viewer).
