Researching practice to change the world

SMALL RESEARCH ON BIG IDEAS – UNDERSTANDING PRACTICE THROUGH RESEARCH ON SOCIAL INTERACTION

26 March 2015

Social interaction is the primordial means through which the business of the social world is transacted, the identities of the participants are affirmed or denied, and its cultures are transmitted, renewed, and modified (Goodwin & Heritage 1990, p.283). This lecture explores the use of interaction research methods, conversation analysis and membership categorisation analysis, in practice-oriented fields such as education. Drawing on a program of research that explores applied drama programs in schools, prisons and aged-care facilities, the presenter will seek to address questions such as: "What can such detailed explorations allow us to know?", "How can research methods such as these contribute to ‘big picture’ research and research-informed practice?", and "How can investigating social interaction ‘change the world’?". While primarily concerned with methodological perspectives and procedures, the lecture will also outline philosophical perspectives related to undertaking interaction research in practice-oriented fields.
