MCA: Culture-in-action 2020:


MCA: Culture-in-action by William Housley and Robin Smith

In this one-day symposium, hosted at the Cardiff University, School of Social Sciences, we invite speakers and attendants to consider current and future directions in Membership Categorisation Analysis. In particular, the event will return to conceptualisation of Membership Categorization Analysis as an everyday and routine array of practical methods for doing ‘culture-in-action'. In doing so we will take time to consider the continued influence of Harvey Sacks on our understanding of members categorisation practices in talk and interaction. In addition to this we will also reconnect and reconsider the significant contributions of key analysts who have developed matters of membership categorisation in a variety of directions. The symposium also provides an opportunity to move beyond the ‘narcissism of small differences’ in order to trace continuities, connections and future trajectories in MCA.

List of speakers include: William Housley, Robin Smith, Richard Fitzgerald, Elizabeth Stokoe, Jessica Robles, Carly Butler, Kevin Whitehead, Geoffrey Raymond
