Loughborough Seminar on video, mobility and multimodal interaction 2018:



On Tuesday 16th January 2018, there will be a one day seminar at Loughborough University on Video, Mobility, Technology and Multimodal Interaction – with sessions from:

Prof Mathias Broth (Department of Culture and Communication, Linköping University)

Prof Pentti Haddington (English Philology, University of Oulu)

Prof Jon Hindmarsh (School of Management and Business, Kings College London)

Dr Eric Laurier (School of Geosciences, University of Edinburgh)

Dr Stuart Reeves (School of Computer Science, University of Nottingham)


10:00 - 10:15: Arrival and Tea/Coffee

10:15 - 10.:30: Prof Liz Stokoe, Loughborough University, 'Welcome and Introduction'

10:30 – 11:30: Jon Hindmarsh, 'The problem of relevance in video-based research' In this presentation I will explore one of the key issues for the analysis of video-based data of naturalistic interactions – the problem of ‘relevance,’ and, more particularly, questions concerning how we can determine the relevance of this or that aspect of bodily conduct for the ongoing interaction; this or that object or technology; or indeed this or that feature of the local environment more generally. I will use examples from video-based studies of healthcare settings to introduce and interrogate these kinds of concerns. One aim of the presentation is to provide a set of background considerations that can be used to reflect on the case studies discussed throughout the rest of the workshop.

11:30 – 12:30 Matthias Broth, 'How a TV-crew manages its invisibility during live broadcasting' My presentation will detail some of the practices through which different members of a TV-crew involved in live TV broadcasting achieve being unnoticed (supposedly) by the television audience. This ongoing achievement builds on an analysis, by camera operators and control room personnel, of the current situation in the studio interaction. Knowing who is talking, or will be talking next, and who is, or will be offering shots of these participants in the studio, members of the crew know when to reposition their cameras with little risk of broadcasting accidentally moving shots or shots in which camera operators are visible.

12:30 – 13:30 LUNCH

13:30 – 14:30: Stuart Reeves (with Christian Greiffenhagen, Chinese University of Hong Kong), 'Dealing with trouble in a performative control room' We look at how troubles are dealt with in a control room set up to manage a mixed reality game / performance designed and run by the artist group Blast Theory. Members of the control room team (including a stage manager / director) monitor three performers streaming live video from the streets nearby to a participating online audience. Critically, not all troubles are dealt with in the same way by the control room. We unpack how radio announcements made by the stage manager / director to runners on the street treat troubles differently, being variously formulated as requests, instructions, or directions. 14:30 – 15:30: Pentti Haddington, 'How do drivers and passengers coordinate two courses of action in leave-taking in cars' My talk will address the question of how participants do many things at the same and how such multiactivity becomes manifest in interactants’ joint action. After a general introduction to multiactivity and why it may interest researchers in EMCA, I will present examples from various multiactivity episodes: driving and workplaces and focus on how drivers and passengers close a conversation and end the journey as multactivity when the driver pulls over to drop off a passenger, how drivers answer a ringing mobile in cars (often in collaboration with the passenger) and how participants achieve the handing over of an object to a co-participant with respect to a non-related other activity.

15:30 – 16:00 BREAK

16:00 – 17:00: Eric Laurier, 'The Point of Payment' From ongoing research, with Tuncer, Kamunen & Haddington, on contactless payment I will describe the embodied actions surrounding and constituting paying the bill. The video material is from a corpus of dual perspective recordings at the counter. A routine concern for customers on settling the bill, at the end of their stay in a café, is the bill’s correctness (e.g. rather than fairness or value). It is however also an occasion in the overall visit when small talk, assessment of the experience of the café is potentially relevant and tipping can be done. It is within this region of relevance service encounter expectations of staff and customers, that the bill has to retrieved, presented, potentially examined and accepted. Paired with the bill is, of course, its payment and payment will then also require the retrieval, selection, presentation and transfer of the customer’s money either as notes or coins or through cards. These courses of action are artfully produced, typically under a strong concern for progressivity, as both sequential and synchronous.

17:00 – 17:30: Liz Stokoe,'Closing Remarks'
