This seminar is dedicated to PhD candidates. It tackles the issue of
comparison in conversation analysis and interactional linguistics in a
way that considers the major methodological procedures of this paradigm :
the way in which sequential analyses are done, the way in which «
collections » of instances documenting a phenonmenon are build, which is
the way to secure the systematicity of the findings ; finally the way
in which this approach can be used for other forms of comparison, namely
across time (change within history) and across cultures (variation
across settings and languages).

The seminar is organized in such a
way 1) to start with a synthesis of the main principles of conversation
analysis (this is meant for relatively novice PhD students as well as
PhD wishing to refresh some key topics), 2) to present how a collection
is done (this is the crucial aspect of the analytical methodology), 3)
to then enlarge the focus, considering cross-linguistic data.

these sessions we will work on the literature, on snythetic
presentations by me, and on actual data. We’ll do exercises in every
session either on data brought by me or by some participants. I also
plan to have discussions about how to read and write papers in
conversation analysis / interactional linguistics – on the basis of best
examples and eventually specific requests of the participants.

seminar also includes collateral events with prestigious guests, to
which the participants are kindly invited. Moreover, I also offer a
MA-only seminar with Peter Auer (U Freiburg) this semester, that might
interest PhD students.
