Conversation Analysis (CA) and Intellectual Disabilities:

Dealing with day-to-day participants’ concerns

 

Chris Walton

Lecturer in Social Psychology

University of Lancaster

Profile: http://www.research.lancs.ac.uk/portal/en/people/chris-walton(2b55a1dc-ec2a-4645-84a5-98c4941cf231).html

 

 

Chris Walton will demonstrate the value of applying CA to naturally occurring interactions in several research settings in NHS social care services for people with intellectual disabilities.  His research takes up a range of issues:  the promotion of choice, the pursuit of informal interactions (hanging out), how displays of affect are understood, and some ways in which gender is made relevant.  He will demonstrate how video and audio recordings form the basis of conversation analysis and his talk will provide an opportunity for the audience to engage with the data and the possibilities of CA-based work first hand. 

 

The session will be facilitated by

Jack Levinson

Fulbright Scholar and Visiting Researcher

Disability Studies, School of Education

University of Sheffield

Associate Professor

Department of Sociology

City College of New York, City University of New York

Jack Levinson will present a critical overview of ethnomethodology and conversation analysis as they developed in American sociology from the 1960s and their use in disability studies including his own research.  These related empirical approaches are based on phenomenology and offer a valuable alternative to conventional assumptions about objectivity and methods in social science.
