Welcome to the State of Talk podcast. For this episode Elliott Hoey interviews Prof. Anne Warfield Rawls, Professor of Sociology at Bentlee University and Research Professor of Socio-informatics at the University of Siegen. We got to talk to Anne about a new and incredibly timely and important anthology of papers she put together with Waverly Duck and Kevin Whitehead called Black Lives Matter: Ethnomethodological and Conversation Analytic Studies of Race and Systemic Racism in Everyday Interaction.
This interview format is just one of many formats that we – the ISCA publication committee – are currently testing. Our broader aims – with the new website, the social media presence, and the Forum Newsletter is to generate discussion, collaboration, and put a fire in our belly about the interactional discoveries that can only come from our kinds of naturalistic inquiries.
