Ethnography, Language & Communication 2019

COURSE OVERVIEW

The programme is designed to help PhD and post-doctoral researchers to navigate the twin perils of over- and under-interpreting discourse data. It introduces a range of key perspectives and tools used to study language and communication ethnographically and it facilitates the study of social practice in a wide range of different settings – education, workplace, recreation, health etc. Initiated with ESRC funding in 2007, this will be our 10th ELC five-day course.
For students from outside King's, some funding is available for bursaries, which will be allocated on the basis of relative need. There will also be a subsidy for students based at KCL.
 
Coverage: Micro-, multi-modal, and trans-contextual analysis; lectures, workshops, data-sessions.
