The 7th Australasian Symposium on Conversation Analysis and Membership Categorisation Analysis is being organised by Wellington’s Conversation Analysis Group and supported by Victoria University of Wellington. The two day symposium is designed to build upon and enhance the emerging profile and scope of CA/MCA work being done within Australasia and to make and develop connections with those working in this field. The symposium aims to support the emerging strength of Australasian CA/MCA work nationally and internationally as well as further develop the unique collaborative interests that have potential for the strengthening the approach into the future.

Continuing our theme of applied conversation analysis here is a video taken at ICCA this year with Assistant Professor Joyce Lamerichs, VU Amsterdam, talking about how she applied conversation analysis to help children with behaviour problems.
Keeping in theme with my discovery of Max Atkinson’s Claptrap on applying conversation analysis, here is the first in my Loughborough series of videos with Charles Antaki talking about applied Conversation Analysis.
Claptrap a documentary featuring Max Atkinson’s demonstration of the utility of CA , applying the results of the analysis of speeches to training a speaker to deliver the most effective speaking devices is now online in Archival content.
This video also features John Heritage speaking on which devices might prove more effective.
For more on this and how Max has gone on with this work check out Max’s Blog http://maxatkinson.blogspot.com/ or add him on twitter.
Over the coming months new pages will be added with archival content of EM/CA material not hosted elsewhere.
The first of these is the Proceedings of the Purdue Symposium on Ethnomethodology, a transcript of the controversy surrounding the then-nascent discipline of ethnomethodology.
Look out for future archival content as it becomes available.
The first in our series of ‘ICCA Diaries’ 2010 is an interview with Dr Danielle Pillet-Shore from the University of New Hampshire, talking about doing analysis and working with collections when using Conversation Analysis.
The first in the 2010 series of ethnomethodology, CA and DP diaries introducing basic topics and research in ethno/CA research to a wider audience.
Assistant Proffessor Dennis Day from the University of Southern Denmark talking about interaction research with the communication handicapped, and using ethnomethodology in the participatory design of workplaces.
