This 4 day course, offered in cooperation with the Doctoral Programme for Design, IT and Communication - SDU Kolding will offer an extended overview of Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis (EMCA) from historical, theoretical and analytic perspectives as well as hands on tutorials on doing EMCA. analyses. Brief lectures will be followed by workshops where we work hands out with EMCA techniques and materials.There will also be opportunities for students to present their own work as well as have their data treated in data sessions. Some of the questions we will pursue, aside from the hands-on work of learning analysis, include: What are the historical, theoretical and analytic differences and similarities between EM and CA? How does EMCA deal with context? What practical value has EMCA been found to have? Are ’collections’ necessary and how does one do them? How does EMCA deal with the body? What about when there’s no talk?

This will be a ’residential course’ which means we will provide for accommodation - a summer house at Skåstrup Strand, Fyn. Unless you live near the summer house and have a car, you need to stay with us as there will be activities in the evenings. Please indicate in the registration form if you will be staying at the summer house with us. Meals at the summer house we will buy and prepare together.

Teachers: Rineke Brouwer, Dennis Day, Kristian Mortensen, Maurice Nevile, Gitte Rasmussen, Johannes Wagner, and possibly more...
