Harold Garfinkel Tribute Events: Call for Testimonies

July 12-14, 2011
Fribourg, Switzerland

The IIEMCA2011 conference will be celebrating the originality, significance and
fruitfulness of the work of Harold Garfinkel. Specific events will be held to
honor Harold Garfinkel's legacy: a tribute ceremony, workshops on his research
and an exhibition displaying testimonies of his influence around the world.

Harold Garfinkel laid the foundations of ethnomethodology and presided over its
development over more than six decades of scholarly work, publishing titles such
as Studies in Ethnomethodology (1967), Ethnomethodology's Program: Working out
Durkheim's Aphorism (2002) and Seeing Sociologically: The Routine Grounds of
Social Action (2006). He passed away on April 21, 2011 at the age of 93.
