Intersubjectivity in Action 2017 Helsinki:


First announcement Intersubjectivity in Action 11–13 May 2017 Helsinki

Dear colleagues,

we invite you to take part in the conference Intersubjectivity in Action in Helsinki, Finland, on 11–13 May 2017, organized by the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Research on Intersubjectivity in Interaction. The conference celebrates the final year of the CoE by presenting the state of the art in research on intersubjectivity in interaction and by pointing out future directions in the field.

Possible themes include different kinds of linguistic, embodied and multimodal practices in achieving and maintaining intersubjectivity, intersubjective understanding in constructing and interpreting sequences of action as well as the interface of emotion and intersubjectivity. We welcome both empirical and theoretical presentations, as long as they have a clear focus on social interaction. Similarly, while our main theoretical and methodological framework is conversation analysis, we also welcome presentations that adopt other approaches, including, for example, interactional linguistics, construction grammar, gesture studies and psychophysiology.
