Copenhagen Multimodality Day 2017

3rd Copenhagen Multimodality Day 2017


Centre for Interaction Research and Communication Design
University of Copenhagen, 6 October, 2017
Proposal Deadline: 20 June, 2017


This research seminar invites proposals for paper presentations related to video ethnography, EMCA, multimodality and interaction analysis. We especially encourage paper presentations that deal with difficult methodological issues and/or presents novel solutions to methodological issues.

The invited keynote speaker is Charles Goodwin, professor of Communication Studies at UCLA

C. Goodwin will be focusing on issues related to the title: “Why Multimodality? Why Co-Operative Action?”.

Paper presentations should focus on, but are not restricted to, issues of embodied conduct, sequential analysis of multimodal actions, participants’ use of objects in a socio-material world, and/or subtle phenomena like emotions and cognition displayed in social interaction.

We welcome empirical papers, discussions and theoretical papers that take EMCA, interaction analysis, video ethnography and multimodality studies as points of departure for new theoretical and methodological considerations.

We strongly encourage presentations that have an experimental and novel approach to settings, data, methods and theories within the broad spectrum of EMCA.
