Proposal Deadline: 20 June, 2018

This research seminar invites proposals for paper presentations related to Video ethnography, EMCA, multimodality and interaction analysis. We especially encourage paper presentations that deal with difficult methodological issues and/or presents novel solutions to methodological issues.

Keynote speaker

The invited keynote speaker is Christian Heath, Professor in work, interaction and technology. Kings College London. The title of his presentation is: Institutional form and multimodal interaction: ecologies of participation and engagement.

Paper presentations

Paper presentations should focus on, but are not restricted to, issues of embodied conduct, sequential analysis of multimodal actions, participants use of objects and technology in a socio-material world, and/or subtle features like feelings and cognition displayed in social interaction.

We welcome empirical papers, discussions and theoretical papers that take EMCA, interaction analysis, video ethnography and multimodality studies as points of departure for new theoretical and methodological considerations.

We strongly encourage presentations that have a novel approach to settings, data, methods and theories within the broad spectrum of EMCA.
