TAG 10-03-17 Dr Anna Vatenen

Hello AIEMCA,

TAG (the transcript analysis group in Brisbane) will have a data session with Dr. Anna Vatenen tomorrow (10-03-17).

“I’ll present data from naturally occurring everyday interactions among friends and family. The data is in Finnish. The focus will be on lapses that occur between sequences of talk. I’d like us to explore the embodied behaviour (but also some vocal elements) by the participants in these moments of silence, and to discuss issues such as co-presence and (dis)engagement.”

We are not able to ZOOM this session.

Hope to see you there

room 309 Gordon Greenwood, 1:30pm Queensland Time

Regards

Nathaniel

TAG 2017 USQ 24th Feb. 1:30

Hello TAG

Welcome to another great year of data sessions and reading groups.

Keep an eye out for calls for abstracts. We are hoping to conduct a symposium on the 2nd of June this year. It will be directed more toward PhD candidates and early career academics, but that may change. Watch this space.

Please get in contact with the AIEMCA google group for mail outs (contact n.mitchell@griffith.edu.au)

For TAG’s first session, we will meet at USQ Ipswich campus. We will also push this meeting out via ZOOM. If you’re interested in Zooming in, please contact the TAG secretary (n.mitchell@griffith.edu.au).

the session will be held:
24th February, 1:30pm Ipswich time.

Here is an updated blurb about this session

Huong Nguyen will be discussing her PhD data.

“The audio data I am presenting is from my PhD project about Vietnamese doctor-patient communication at a public hospital in Vietnam (specialized in traditional medicine). I’m interested in exploring how the doctors seek information from their patients and how the patients disclose information to their doctors during the medical consultations”

 

See you there
