CORE SKILLS IN CONVERSATION ANALYSIS 

Workshop and symposium: 12 – 17 June 2020

CORE SKILLS IN CONVERSATION ANALYSIS WORKSHOP

Rutgers’ Conversation Analysis Lab Faculty will be holding a Training Workshop (12-16 June 2020) focused on developing core skills in conversation analysis. The workshop will be taught by Galina Bolden, Alexa Hepburn, John Heritage, Jenny Mandelbaum, Lisa Mikeselland Geoffrey Raymond. The workshop will be followed by a symposium (16-17 June) exploring ‘Actions in Talk’.

The workshop is designed for graduate students, researchers, and faculty interested in developing or brushing up on the essential tools for conducting conversation analysis. Workshop sessions will comprise primarily small group activities, involving instructional content and systematic data analysis procedures, as well as ‘calisthenic exercises’ designed to consolidate specific CA tools such as turn-taking, sequence organization, and repair. We will work with a wide range of data corpora, including both every day and institutional interactions, analyzing video as well as audio data.

Pre-workshop reading and exercises will be provided, and evening homework exercises will be set, allowing participants to consolidate skills.

The cost of the workshop (plus symposium) will be $550 for faculty, $250 for (post)graduate students. This will include tea, coffee, and light refreshments each day. Subsidized evening meals out together will be organized post workshop and post-symposium. Participation will be capped at 30 people, so to register email Alexa Hepburn giving some brief details of your experience in conversation analysis before December 15th2019alexa.hepburn@rutgers.edu
