Analyzing social practices for sense making. Developing analytic skills. (EMCA Bootcamp IX)

This 5 days residential seminar will engage with recent topics in ethnomethodology and conversation analysis. Among the topics addressed will be the phenomenological roots of EM, multimodal analysis, grammar and the body, collection-based analysis, space and mobility, and applied conversation analysis. Participants are invited to bring their own data for data sessions and to nominate topics for discussion. The program will consist of lectures, group discussions, assignments and data sessions. Notification and further information about the course site will be sent to the accepted participants (about October, 1).

When you sign up for the course, please send a description of your PhD project including a description of your data collection.
The description should be max 2 pages and may include a (short) transcription and analytic notes of a phenomenon you are currently working on. Since this course is notoriously overbooked, the description of your PhD project will play a major role in admitting participants to the course.
The description should be emailed to Søren W. Eskildsen ( by the time of registration – deadline is September, 1).

This course is offered in cooperation with the Doctoral Program for Media, Technology and Social Interaction, Kolding, the Doctoral Program in Language and Communication, Odense, both at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), and the PhD program for Language, Linguistics, Cognition and Communication at Aarhus University.
