Language and Social Interaction is concerned with exploring details of human discourse and human interaction. The Division sponsors research in language theory, linguistics, pragmatics, semiotics, sociolinguistics, ethnography of speaking, conversation analysis and related approaches to human social interaction. The primary focus is in interpersonal and group settings, face-to-face or mediated by telephone and computer. The Division sponsors a developing focus in interaction in work contexts, including medical and therapy settings. Micro-analytic, textual, and cultural approaches are welcome, as are both qualitative and quantitative methods. The Division is interested in developing archives of audio, video, and written records of naturally-occurring communication events.
