The second reading group meeting of the semester will be held next week on the 8th of March, Tuesday at 15:30 in the meeting room of HUMAN Research Centre. Following the lively discussion we had last week on the systematics of turn-taking, we will read and discuss another seminal work, from Heritage (1997) on institutional talk and conversation analysis.
Heritage, J. (1997).Conversation analysis and institutional talk: analyzing data. In David Silverman (ed.) Qualitative Research: Theory, Method and Practice. London: Sage: 161-182.
For the structure of reading group meetings (2015), see the list below:
We will start the reading group by summarising the articles, followed by an in-depth discussion of them.
Additionally, you may want to do some of the following in order to prepare for the discussion:
Write down any questions you may have about the articles
Find one or more passages that you find interesting
Think about how the points presented in the articles relate to other theories or to your own research
Choose the paper you agree with the most, then pretend to be the devil’s advocate and criticize the authors’ viewpoints
