Workshop with G. Bolden, at UQ

With great happiness UQ brings you an opportunity to engage in a CA workshop this coming year.

This workshop will examine the organisation of turn
taking, elements of transcription, and action sequencing
in conversation. We will explore the turn taking system,
including such topics as how speakers identify and orient
to units of talk, how interlocutors project and coordinate
speaker transition, and how to tell the difference between
overlap and interruption. We will provide instruction on
how to produce an accurate transcript that captures a broad
range of vocal elements of speaker delivery. Additionally,
we will explore how participants build courses of actions
through adjacency pairs and examine aspects of preference
organisation. Participants will be expected to complete a
reading assignment and an analytic exercise beforehand.
The workshop is designed for graduate students and
researchers interested in developing skills in qualitative
analysis of social interaction through conversation analytic
methods. The workshop is aimed at those with some prior
exposure to CA and will also be suitable for researchers
interested in consolidating and renewing their conversation
analytic skills.
Sessions will comprise primarily of small group activities,
involving systematic introduction to instructional content and
data analysis procedures, working with a wide range of data
corpora, including everyday interactions, family mealtimes,
medical and clinical encounters, and emergency helplines.
