Title: Lectures on Conversation
Edited By: Emanuel A Schegloff

This project makes available for the first time the entire corpus of
lectures by a writer whose thought and method influenced a generation of
sociologists and sociolinguists. Originally published as two volumes, this
comprehensive single-volume edition contains the complete lectures,
beginning with the lectures delivered at UCLA, from Fall 1964 through
Spring 1968. Sacks explores a great variety of topics, but two key issues
emerge: rules of conversational sequencing, and membership categorization
devices. The lectures culminate in the extensive and formal explication of
turn-taking delivered in Fall 1967.
