In this hands-on introduction to the study of face-to-face interaction, you have the opportunity to work directly with videodata. While we’ll read literature nearly every week, the course is data-centered and designed to hone your skills in observation and analysis. For much of the term, you’ll use a freeware multimedia annotator to make different types of observations on the same stretch of video data, data which you record or capture. You’ll learn to detect and make sense of subtle verbal and nonverbal signals through which people make meaning in face-to-face interaction, like pauses, interruptions, shifts in speech rate, repetition, and gesture. The course offers techniques that can then be applied to other types of research, including research that is primarily concerned with larger scale social and cultural processes.
