Meeting Description:

ICCA10 is an international multidisciplinary meeting on conversation analysis, which focuses on talk-in-interaction in everyday conversation, institutional and mediated interaction.

Panel/Session: Multimodal Perspectives on Explaining (Panel organizers: Janet Spreckels & Christiane Hohenstein)

With life-long learning becoming the educational norm in many societies, explaining as a competence is highly in demand. Whereas previous studies have already shed light on certain forms of explaining within professional discourse scenarios - e.g. in the context of academic presentations (Hohenstein 2006) and doctor-patient interactions (Rehbein 1994, Hartog 1996) - we will expand this investigative focus to include both institutional and non-institutional scenarios. We will look at settings with different knowledge distribution (instructor-student relationship, group learning, etc.) and the various forms of interactivity and co-operation that develop during practically every process of explaining (cf. Spreckels 2009). In all settings, our concern is especially with the multimodality of explanation as determined by:

1) Institutional and environmental factors such as training centres, classrooms, family homes etc.
2) Equipment such as the combination of white boards, overhead projectors, books, student notes as found in many high schools; see Pitsch/Ayass 2008;
3) Multimodal practices and communicative resources such as gestures, mimics, gaze;
4) Multimodal practices and communicative resources in intercultural settings. More specifically - and in line with the conference theme of next year's ICCA - we aim to describe and illuminate the interplay between these multimodal factors and their relative effects on the explaining process as a whole.

Call for Papers:

Contributions to our panel are expected to address one or more of issues described in the Conference Description and should be based on original and empirically founded studies of explaining. We welcome abstracts of around three hundred words that include information on the study's guiding research question, data set, theoretical background, methodology, and results. The panel format will consist of presentations of 20 minutes each plus 10 minutes of individual discussion. There will also be a general discussion of our topic at the end.

Sunmission of applications with proposed Title, brief description of data and content of presentation as well as author(s)' affiliation(s) and address(es) until 26th of July 2009.

Detailed Abstracts should be submitted by email to the organisers by email before August 10th 2009.
