This presentation provides a discussion of the way members of a society make sense of their everyday practices through social interaction. This discussion will be achieved through an overview of the ethnomentodolgoically informed methods of conversation analysis and membership categoriastion analysis. These methodologies engage in the detailed study of talk in order to understand structural and social action. The presentation will focus on the historical, epistemological and practical elements of these methodologies, as well as the value of such methods to our understanding of education and social work.
