TAG data session Southbank Campus 12-9-14 2-4pm S07 3.03

Hello AIEMCA and TAG.

We have a data session this Friday at Soutbank, just behind the ship inn.  http://www.theshipinn.com.au/


This data session will use data from a project looking at feedback scenarios in Police training. This is sensitive data and is not able to be shared outside of the data session.
The main focus this week is the function/use of the term “just” often realised as [dʃus] in the data (that is the /t/ is omitted). It seems that there may be similarities in the realization of just and that of similar data shared in an earlier session this year from Finnish.

Nathaniel Mitchell will lead the data session.

Another data session wil be held on the 26th of September (same location and time). A NZ student has asked to share their data for that session. More details to follow.

If you know anyone who would like to attend the TAG sessions, please bring them along.

Also, there is a contact form below that you can put their details in if they want to be a part of the TAG 2014 email list (and be emailed directly through a google account).

Thank you for coming along.

TAG data session, 12-09-14 Southbank s07 3.03

Hello TAG,

Welcome to the AIEMCA website. We will try to host the TAG (Brisbane) meetings through this site so as to co-ordinate the EM/MCA/CA activities in and around Australasia.
We will have a TAG data session every fortnight, beginning the 12th of September. Our last session was run by Stuart Ekberg on the 29th of August. It ran for 2 hours (2pm to 4pm) at the Griffith University Southbank Campus.
Currently, we are searching for more data sessions to run. We are interested in sharing a small set of data, please feel free to approach Nathaniel Mitchell either via email (nathaniel.mitchell@griffithuni.edu.au) or in person.
Currently, Alistair Fildes and Nathaniel Mitchell are interested in sharing more of their Police Recruits data on the 12th of September. The data itself is of Police Recruits’ feedback sessions between themselves and their trainers. The data itself is sensitive so there will need to be a limiting of sharing of the data solely to the TAG session.
Please forward news about TAG data sessions to anyone at your institution and beyond.
If there are people who wish to be involved in the mailing list for future TAG data sessions, please fill in the attached form and we will add you to the list.

 I look forward to seeing you all on the 12th at 2pm.
Southbank Campus, s07 3.03

Call For Papers: AIEMCA 2014 Conference

AIEMCA2014-flyer-imageThe 9th Australasian Institute of Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis (AIEMCA) conference is being hosted by The University of Waikato on 20 – 21 November  2014.

See the full Call for Papers and the Conference Website (on this site).

The two day conference is designed to build on and enhance the emerging profile and scope of ethnomethodology (EM), conversation analysis (CA) and membership categorisation analysis (MCA) work being done within Australasia and to make and develop connections with those working in this field, nationally and internationally.

Please note that there is an extension on the abstract submission date. Abstracts can now be submitted until Tuesday 30th September. Those abstracts already submitted are currently being sent out for review and a decision will be returned to the authors by the end of September.

Bibliography of Research on Language and Social Interaction (1987 – 2013)

ROLSI Cover GenericMaurice Nevile has prepared a complete bibliography of the journal Research on Language and Social Interaction (ROLSI) from 1987 to 2013.

The bibliography makes it much easier to search for specific items, people, phenomena etc. and includes web links to all papers.

The most up-to-date version is available at Maurice Nevile’s Academia.edu page.

However, the original version is also mirrored here at AIEMCA.net in case the Academia.edu version is not available: ROLSI_Bibliography_1987-2013_Nevile2014-libre.

AIEMCA AJC Special Issue

Knowledge and Asymmetries in Action

Edited by Sean RintelEdward Reynolds, and Richard Fitzgerald

AJC 40(2) CoverAnnouncing the publication of a Special Issue of Australian Journal of Communication 40 (2): Selected papers from the 2012 Biennial Conference of the Australasian Institute of Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis.

The issue also includes a memoriam for Mark Rapley, one of the founders of AIEMCA, by Alec McHoul.

For the first time, AJC also has two features of interest for the EM/CA/MCA and wider discourse analysis and linguistics communities.

  • First, the issue is offered online with totally free open access.
  • Second, several papers include embedded video or audio of interaction, linked to transcripts. This allows research to move away from the limitations of traditional print publication of short text-only transcripts and limited greyscale photographs and closer towards the fields’ ideal of fully inspectable data.

We thank all the contributors to the issue and those who presented at and attended the conference.

Announcing a new work Interaction and Mobility: Language and the Body in Motion

Maurice Nevile is delighted to announce publication of his new book, co-edited with Pentti Haddington and Lorenza Mondada.

Haddington, P., Mondada, L., Nevile, M. (eds). (2013) ‘Interaction and Mobility: Language and the Body in Motion’. Berlin: De Gruyter.

Details of the book are available at
A description of the book is
How do people interact when they are on the move? How do people interact in order to be mobile? How do people coordinate the mobility of others? How does mobility feature in social interaction? “Multimodal interaction” and “mobility” are of increasing interest to scholars across disciplines.’Interaction and mobility’is the first book to study these aspects comprehensively. It provides cutting-edge research by international scholars who use video-recordings of real-life everyday interactions for studying in close detail human social interaction in such diverse multimodal settings as airplanes, cars, traffic control centres, dance schools, museums and other public places, and as part of such activities as instructing, navigating, identifying an enemy on the battlefield, organising a meeting, playing videogames, shopping, performing and dancing. Together, these studies highlight features of social interaction, including language, embodied conduct, and spatial and material orientation, for being mobile, for interacting on the move, so that mobility becomes a ubiquitous feature of our lives. This book is a valuable resource to anyone interested in multimodal interaction and mobility.
