Description of workshop
This data workshop on two separate dates will invite two international experts to work on data from three different research projects that all work with videos of interactions where affective stance is expressed in moments where agreement and disagreement are negotiated. Two of the sources We organised two workshops on two separate dates to engage in in-depth discussion of video-data of fictional and non-fictional texts that are concerned with sequences of agreement and disagreement. For the first workshop we invited Prof. Heiko Hausendorf as discussant and sparring partner. The data came from three different research projects that all work with videos of interactions where affective stance is expressed in moments where agreement and disagreement are negotiated. Two of the sources are fictional and staged (movies, Prof. Herlinghaus; Korean TV series and their translation, Miriam Locher), one source is experimental (argumentation tasks in classrooms, Martin Luginbühl). The three organisers prepared datasets to discuss with the expert, with the aim to cross-fertilize each others’ perspectives (literary studies, media linguistics, interpersonal pragmatics, interactional linguistics) to refine research questions and methodologies to continue working on our projects. The second workshop continued the discussion on the third dataset on argumentative tasks in the classroom. We invited two new members of Martin Luginbühl’s research team to give input on their approach to the research interface (Tamara Koch and Chantal Wanderon) and a third external expert who recently completed her PhD on writing competence in primary school interaction. The connection between these projects was the establishing of evaluation criteria as well as establishing competenies in dis/agreeing. fictional and staged, one source is experimental. The three scholars will prepare datasets to discuss with the experts, each other and members of the audience. The aim is to cross-fertilize each others’ perspectives (literary studies, media linguistics, interpersonal pragmatics, interactional linguistics) to refine research questions and methodologies.

Imagine if Omicron isn't that bad and all we end up achieving by implementing mitigations is reducing cases, taking pressure of hospitals, reducing long covid, ... protecting unvaccinated kids, buying time for people to be boosted and reducing the number of people dying from Covid.
This should be all over the front pages. The government's terminating our right to protest, through amendments sneaked into the Police Bill at the last minute....
It's the biggest assault on democracy in 70+ years, and hardly anyone seems to know.
