Membership Categorization Analysis workshop Lboro 11-12th March 2019:


Membership Categorization Analysis (MCA) workshop

This is a two-day workshop which will introduce you to Membership Categorization Analysis (MCA) as a method for analysing the way categorical topics (e.g., gender, identity, ethnicity, sexuality) can be analysed in everyday social life. It will describe the development of MCA in the context of other methods, particularly conversation analysis and discursive psychology. We will use examples from spoken and written interaction to develop a toolkit for analysis, as well as materials to practice analysis. We will also see how MCA research can have applications in the world beyond academia.

The MCA workshop is held 11-12th March 2019, at Burleigh Court, Loughborough University, UK.

NB: The MCA workshop is followed by the CARM training workshop, held 13th-14th March, for people who want to attend both.

This workshop is part of an ongoing annual series of CA workshops offered at Loughborough University's Centre for Research in Communication and Culture.

Who is running the workshop?

The workshop will be organised and led by Elizabeth Stokoe. Liz is Professor of Social Interaction at Loughborough University and has worked extensively across conversation analysis, discursive psychology and MCA, including bringing together these methods in studies of gender, racism and identity in interaction.
