Our Interaction Analysis Lab (IAL) here at NYU is a forum for small, informal, intergenerational discussion sessions about discourse/interaction analysis methods in the spirit of the Research Group meetings that were such a large part of my own doctoral study as well as the working groups described by Jordan & Henderson in their 1995 JLS piece on Interaction Analysis. The conversations in our group tend to follow student-initiated topics, running the gamut from methodological rigor to technical advice to pure data sessions (although we always try to ground the discussion in some data). Students, faculty, and researchers are welcome to join us; we're glad to have diverse voices and perspective.
Summer 2016: We meet Thursdays, 2pm-4pm. Send me a note if you're interested in participating!
