Meeting Description:

Researchers from a broad range of fields find themselves compelled to
(re-)consider the nature of their relationship to a common evidentiary practice:
the transcription of recordings of naturally occurring spoken interaction. This
symposium brings together scholars from an interdisciplinary range of
perspectives to take stock of some of the key cross-cutting issues in
transcription -- theory and practice, representation and politics -- that
continue to have such important, if often unnoticed, implications for how we
come to an understanding of the phenomena which are to be discovered in spoken

The invited speakers all share an orientation to the evidence of naturally
occurring spoken interaction (as mediated through audio and/or video
recordings), and yet maintain a variety of transcription practices that reflects
the diversity of their goals, theoretical orientations, and analytical
practices. Despite this diversity, or because of it, now seems an especially
opportune moment in the development of our respective fields to come to terms
with our common orientation to the challenges of transcription.
