In this introduction to the study of face-to-face interaction, you have the opportunity to work directly with videodata. While you will read literature every week, the course is data-centered and designed to develop skills in observation and analysis. For at least half of the term, you will use a multimedia annotator (ELAN, developed by the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics) to make different types of observations on the same stretch of video data, data which you select. You will learn to detect and make sense of subtle verbal and nonverbal behaviors through which people make meaning in face-to-face interaction, like pauses, interruptions, laughter, shifts in speech rate, repetition, and co-speech gestures. The course teaches students techniques that can then be applied to other types of research, including research that is primarily concerned with larger scale social and cultural processes.
