7th Copenhagen Multimodality Day: “On Multisensoriality”

This research seminar invites proposals for paper presentations related to video-based studies of interaction. We especially invite researchers working with data on the senses in social interaction from an interactional and video-based perspective. 

Keynote speaker
Professor Lorenza Mondada, University of Basel: “Sensing 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 a novel approach to settings, data, methods and theories within the broad spectrum of EM/CA. Papers should preferably focus on the senses in interaction, but abstract submissions will not be rejected on that sole criteria if they chose to focus on other multimodal stuff.

Practical information

This one-day research seminar is being prepared and organized by the Centre for Interaction Research and Communication Design at the University of Copenhagen. It is being organized as a hybrid format, where physical participation is possible on campus (if the current regulations allow so), and online participation and presentations via a zoom video link. We do hope that most people will join us physically.

Registration to the seminar will be done through a website that opens after the submission deadline
