The course provides a basic introduction to and fundamental grounding in interactional sociolinguistics, particularly as it developed in sociology and then moved into anthropology. We will first consider foundational ideas about how concepts of self and other and of social reality emerge in social interaction, in the work of George Herbert Mead, Alfred Schutz, Erving Goffman, and Harold Garfinkel. Then attention will turn to the development of conversation analysis in this tradition by Sacks, Schegloff and Jefferson. The rest of the course will address ways that ideas in this tradition have been expanded upon and combined with other intellectual traditions to yield the complex and varied approaches to language in face to face interaction that we work with today.
