IPRA Diaries 1: Ann Weatherall

The first in our series of web diaries on Ethnmethodology/Conversation Analysis features Ann Weatherall from the University of Wellington talking to me at IPRA about conversation analysis. It is intended as a basic introduction to the ideas of conversation analysis in a condensed form.

These are featured and hosted through AIEMCA’s youtube channel. You are encouraged to use these videos on your own websites through the channel, but please ensure you give credit and a link to http://aiemca.net/

Members/Publications

To increase the visibility of Australian CA and Ethnomethodology AIEMCA.net is planning to produce publication summaries of EM/CA publications from Australasian scholars (yup that means NZ too). If you have published something in EM/CA let us know at aiemca@aiemca.net. Articles, books, book chapters etc that have been published will be posted in quarterly publication summaries.

Also across the next month or so the membership listing for AIEMCA.net will be refreshed. To keep the list up to date if you are a part of the Australasian EM/CA community (as a scholar, research student or publishing non-scholar) let us know. Founding members will be retained in a separate listing.

To be listed as an AIEMCA member please email aiemca@aiemca.net with your name and institution (where relevant) and a link to your academic webpage (if any). Please let us know prior to 18 September 2008 after which the new listing will become live. Applications after this date will be accepted, but listing will be delayed.
