Multimodal Transcription – 17th October 2013

This seminar and workshop focuses on transcription with the aim of investigating how different modes of digitally recorded social interaction can be remade on the printed page and pafig3ge-like screen. We will explore what is sustained, gained and lost in transcribing embodied communication, and we will examine a selection of published transcripts, including those that consist of: Writing only; Drawing; Drawing with writing; Traced stills; and Photographic stills superimposed with or accompanied by writing.

In addition, ways in which transcripts are set out will be considered (e.g. tabular, narrative layouts).

Who is this seminar for?

This seminar is aimed at doctoral and new career researchers interested in developing their understanding of how the multimodality of social interaction can be re-presented in different modes of transcription

The seminar will be led by Dr Rosie Flewitt and Kate Cowan
