Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis Graduate Student Workshop

Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis Graduate Student Workshop

August 20, 2014



On the day after the ASA 2014 ends in San Francisco—August 20, 2014—the Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis section will organize a workshop for graduate students of the section at the Palo Alto Research Center, 45 minutes south of the city.

The goal of the workshop is to give graduate students an opportunity to present their research to a group of senior researchers and other graduate students in order to receive feedback and further
their analysis. A number of senior researchers will be there to provide feedback and lead the
discussions. We expect that each graduate student will have an hour to present.

To this end, we are seeking submissions from graduate students who are interested in presenting
data and receiving feedback on their research. We encourage students to submit proposals to present
their analysis of naturalistic video or audio data, documents and other artifacts. Please supply the
following information to erik@vinkhuyzen.com, by April 30th.


a)    Your name and aļ¬ƒliation & a short bio

b)   The focus of your research, and what kind of data you’ll bring related to that research
