Conference theme: “Practices”

Ethnomethodologists and conversation analysts have increasingly focused on the study of social interaction as embodied practices. This turn has opened up new perspectives on ethnomethods and the bodily and temporal organization of social interaction. The last years have seen a wealth of flourishing empirical research in this area. Still, major theoretical and methodological questions are waiting to be solved.
