The new data session series “Talk, Interaction and Multimodality” (TIM) is an interdisciplinary initiative that provides researchers working on empirical interactional data, largely within frameworks such as Conversation Analysis, Ethnomethodology and Interactional Linguistics, with an opportunity to get together regularly to present and discuss audio- and/or video-recordings of social activities of any kind. Presenters can introduce their work-in-progress based on interactional data from different languages and settings, both in institutional and everyday activities. The data sessions will be conducted in English.

More information about the seminar series can be found (in Swedish) on the Department of Education’s website.


(The seminar rooms are located in Södra huset, building D, floor 3, room D365 or D389, Department of Swedish and Multilingualism.)
