The Academic Presentation: Situated Talk in Action, Hardback Book

The Academic Presentation: Situated Talk in Action Hardback

Part of the Directions in Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis series

Description

How is the task of giving a presentation accomplished?

In this insightful book Johanna Rendle-Short unpacks this seemingly simple task to show the complexity that underlies it.

Examining the academic presentation as a case in point, she details how seminar presenters interact with the audience and objects around them to produce a coherent whole.

Through detailed examination of talk-in-interaction the book throws light on one instance of talk as situated practice, demonstrating both the ordinariness of the academic presentation, and its intricate complexity.

While audience members recognize that a seminar is underway, this book shows how this recognition comes about.

The Academic Presentation will greatly interest scholars of talk and interaction analysis, situated talk, ethnomethodology and conversation analysis.
