Summer School "Advancing Multimodal Conversation Analysis"

Basel, 21-24.6.2022. | link 

I have always taught at all levels, from BA to MA and PhD, as well as to junior and senior researchers.

At BA level, I teach introductory courses in the history and practice of linguistics, as well as courses and seminars on a diversity of topics such as multilingual practices, deixis, the expression of space and time in language and interaction, the syntax/pragmatics interface, grammar in interaction, knowledge in language and discourse, orality and writing, language and identity, language and sensoriality, and methodology for dealing with spoken and written corpora.

At MA level, I teach topics rather focused on conversation analysis and interactional grammar, dealing with multimodal resources for social interaction, turn-taking and sequence organization, action formation, temporality and emergence in interaction, institutional talk, membership categorization analysis, and methodology for dealing with social interaction. 

At PhD level, I mainly address issues in multimodal conversation analysis, organizing workshops and continuous training of doctoral students within the doctoral school HPSL (Herman Paul School of Linguistics, Basel-Freiburg).

Over the years I have been organizing and teaching in a variety of Doctoral Schools across the world. Among them:
