Title: The Interactional Organization of Academic Talk
Subtitle: Office hour consultations
Written By: Holger Limberg
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26amp%3Bbns%20198
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 198
Description:

This book provides interesting and critical insights into a common
university practice, the academic office hour. Office hours are a
discursive site for a variety of different issues, ranging from
administrative matters to course-related and study-related concerns. The
study offers both an ethnographic account of this speech event within the
socio-cultural context of a German university as well as a more detailed
analysis of the interactional organization of academic consultations. It
draws on natural recordings of entire office hour interactions in order to
show how participants’ actions at different stages of the talk organize and
accomplish the consultation. The analytical focus is set on the sequential
activities teachers and students engage in as they conduct a consultation.
This includes, for instance, how participants open an office hour talk, how
they establish an agenda, how they manage advice-giving, and how they close
the consultation. As such, this book will be of practical use to students
and faculty members as well as scholars from different disciplines who work
in the areas of institutional talk and talk-in-interaction.
