ASA EMCA 2013 Conference Program (New York City)

Dear EMCA-ers,

A few updates on the ASA's Annual Conference in New York in August.  The conference schedule has been posted, and you can take a look at it online.
As we have announced before, we have 8 sessions, and are looking forward to them all.  Below is the schedule (You will notice that, unfortunately, two sessions are at the same time.  We have contacted the ASA about this and asked them to change it, but they were unable to accommodate us).
We will also have a social.  It will happen on Saturday night, August 10, in ROSIE O' GRADY'S, and restaurant close the conference hotels.  We hope you can all join us there.

All in all, a very solid program in a great city.  We look forward to seeing you all there.

Best, Erik & Dirk

On Saturday August 10th, from 6:30 -9:00pm

The perspectives and methods of conversation analysis are increasingly used within sociological investigations in arenas such as health and illness, the analysis of culture, of human relationships, of occupational work and practice, and in feminist enquiry. Conversation analysis offers a strongly empirical and systematic means of analysing the social organisation of interaction. Given its applications within sociological enquiries, it is increasingly taught within sociology degree and postgraduate courses. Furthermore, sociologists are starting to incorporate conversation analysis within the training they deliver to others – most commonly within medical school curricula, but also in areas such as business and management.
Part of the rationale for this workshop is that whilst there are many individual sociologists designing and delivering teaching of conversation analysis, there has been limited dialogue on this topic between these individuals, and there is no central repository and community for which teaching of conversation analysis forms the focus. The workshop will constitute an important developmental step towards sharing established and innovative practice.

This workshop draws upon a ‘teaching conversation analysis’ workshop we convened at a previous ASA conference. It drew a substantial and engaged audience. The theme of our proposed 2013 workshop: ‘Introducing conversation analysis to those unfamiliar with it’, emerged as of great interest amongst those who attended the previous event. The goals will be:
- To articulate and share experiences of those who communicate CA to various audiences including sociology and social psychology undergraduates, undergraduates in healthcare professions, research colleagues and health and social care professionals
- To provide a forum for discussing challenges and strategies with regards first introductions of CA to audiences unfamiliar with it
- To introduce specific resources spanning the design, modalities of delivery, and assessment and evaluation of teaching. Including ICT resources, pedagogical approaches, and practical exercises

Intended audience: postgraduate and faculty sociologists from a broad range of backgrounds who themselves teach, or may in the future be in a position to teach conversation analytic methods and perspectives to sociologists and others
Sociologists with broad interests in communicating practical methods and sociological perspectives to a variety of audiences
