“This is my Lesson”: On Possessing Lessons – Chris Elsey

Recorded 20th December 2010. In this talk, Chris documents the different ways in which issues of possession, responsibility and control are interactionally exhibited and managed between members of staff and students. He observes classroom interaction to demonstrate how a teacher displays organisational authority to all parties, and in doing so makes it explicit that it is their right to control the topic of the lesson. Please note that there is no recording available for this presentation.
