13 June 2012
11:00 to 16:30 , University of Sheffield

Dr Diane Mavers

This MODE seminar focuses on transcription with the aim of investigating how different modes of (digitally recorded) social interaction can be remade on the page-like screen, it will explore what is sustained, gained and lost in transcribing embodied communication.

Examination of a selection of published transcripts will include those that consist of:
- Writing only
- Drawing, and drawing with writing
- Traced stills
- Photographic stills superimposed with or accompanied by writing.
In addition, ways in which transcripts are set out will be considered (e.g. tabular, narrative layouts).
There will be opportunities to experiment with transcribing a short extract of video footage and to reflect on, question and discuss participants' experiences of transcription. In conclusion, general debate on methodological approaches will be invited.
