Flyer for the Analyzing Race/Ism in interaction event


In this three-day workshop, participants will explore how racial identities are invoked and made relevant in everyday conversations, and learn how to analyze race, racism, and discrimination in social interaction. Participants will draw on their expertise on race and learn how to conduct fine-grained analysis of language and culture using ethnomethodology and conversation analysis (EMCA).

The course will take place over three days and will consist of four sessions. For each session, participants will watch on their own time a one-hour pre-recorded lecture, and then participate in a two-hour facilitated workshop that reviews and works with the material introduced in the lecture. The workshop will take place online, in real-time; however it will take place in two streams based on location and time zone.

Lecture Session topics include:

  1.     Theories of race and interaction
  2.     Professional data practices  
  3.     Transcription
  4.     Analyzing race in interaction

Lecturers include – Francesca Williamson, Kevin Whitehead, Alexa Hepburn, Joseph Garafanga, Leah Wingard,  Natasha Shrikant , and Tim Berard
