“In patient-doctor conversations about seizures one might expect to find patients trying their best to describe symptoms and perceptions around these seizures in order to allow the doctor to diagnose whats the cause and suggest a treatment accordingly. However, this is not always the case. I will present data of a patient-doctor interview where the patient seems to resist interactional challenges by the doctor, and tries to avoid more detailed descriptions and narrations of the seizures. I would like to discover together how exactly this resisting is done and discuss implications.”

The data is drawn from some discussion surrounding a political, social or moral issue in the UK. The data serves to showcase how members demonstrably orient-to, produce, and resist descriptions of themselves and others in the ‘moral space of everyday life’ (Housley and Fitzgerald, 2009). Additionally, analysing the situated interactional organisation and unproblematic production of descriptions reveals the mundane reasoning and sense-making practices (Butler et al. 2009) in the local production of social order.

The data was from a legislative committee member’s visit to a new immigrant’s family in the latter’s house, Taiwan, January 2017. Originally from Cambodia, Lillian is the first new immigrant serving for the Legislative Yuan. The data shows her regular visit to Wendy, a foreign spouse from Xiamen, China. Dominic is Wendy’s husband, and Yvonne is her daughter. All participants speak both Taiwanese Southern Min (TSM) and Mandarin Chinese (Mandarin) during the interaction. In Taiwan, in addition to Mandarin Chinese, which is the official language, TSM is another primary native language spoken by approximately 85% of the population (Ang, 2013). I am interested in the different methods Lillian deploys, including language switching, to interact with Wendy, Dominic, and Yvonne.

Whole-class negotiations:
The data for this session comes from a study on Chilean secondary English as a Foreign Language teachers’ multimodal practices to provide feedback. This class is working on a jigsaw picture-story task: students are organised in groups, and each group is working on a different event of the story. They have arranged their pictures in order and written down a few sentences about them. Now, the groups need to decide which event goes first, second, third, etc. In other words, they need to negotiate the order of events to make up the whole story. The teacher is the one leading the process and, thus, needs to manage students’ collaborations and engage the whole class, as well as provide them with feedback and guidance to accomplish the task set.

A micro-analytic investigation of student-initiated humour in EFL classes in Turkey:
The study took place in institutional setting. The data is video recordings gathered from English language classes at a university in Turkey. The participants are university students with an intermediate level of English. The videos are recorder with two cameras as front and rear camera. But, we will mostly focus on the front camera, which is facing the students. It is English data but it may also include some Turkish.
