Living the material world
EM/CA research has long examined matters of materiality within practices for the creation, understanding and organization of social order, activity, and interaction. Materiality figures, for example, as features of the physical surround, gesture and the body, space and location, mobility, objects, and multimodality. Within EM, investigations have considered, for example, queueing, maps and direction giving, scientific method, and technology use. CA studies have examined materiality across a wide range of settings and situations of ordinary conversation, as well as in professional and institutional interaction (e.g. collaborative work, health care, education, legal and police work, designing and innovation). In short, research shows how materiality realises sociality.
An EM/CA focus on the material world can involve particular challenges, such as isolating and accessing scenes of interest, capturing and representing data, identifying and interpreting phenomena, settling on evidence and analytic approach, developing argument, forming conceptualisations and findings, and connecting across scholarly disciplines.
