Data: In this session, Bryanna Hebenstreit (PhD Candidate at the University at Albany, SUNY) will present data set at a Habitat for Humanity build in Upstate NY. We will be analyzing a short clip showing how a volunteer gets the floor and demonstrates a technique that is presented as new for the onlookers. His demonstration is specifically targeted for the supervisor but ends up becoming a resource for all onlookers. We’ll explore how interactants ‘take over’ the main interaction and build their own talk, gestures, and embodied comportments to showcase an action to be seen by a particular interactant. Data in American English.
Data: Bryanna Hebenstreit (PhD Candidate at the University at Albany, SUNY) will provide video data of an instance where a participant becomes familiar with a floorboard cutting tool on a home refurbishment site. This data provides a look at how participants arrange themselves in relationship to the tool, how participants project their usage of the tool, how other participants are brought into the interaction, and how ‘experienced’ onlookers may anticipate by the embodied conduct of a participant potential consequences of that arrangement and exclaim or otherwise attempt to avert undesirable consequences. Data is in American English.
Data:Dr. Danielle Pillet-Shore (University of New Hampshire) will provide some video data showing the opening phase of face-to-face interactions in casual and institutional encounters. Since the beginning of an encounter is a time of heightened exposure to novel sensory stimuli and also a time of heightened self- and other- awareness and attentiveness, we will consider a collection showing participants engaging in the social action of registering — audibly pointing to a publicly perceivable referent so others share attention on it (i.e., “noticing” and/or “announcing”). Data in American English.
The Human Interaction Laboratory data session will meet on the 14th December 2017 in unit 2580, 200 Boston Ave. Medford, MA 02155 from 3-5pm. There is parking outside the building, please meet outside the lab on the second floor (follow the numbers around the corridor from on the second floor until you arrive at 2580.

Data: For this session we will be looking at video data collected by Dr. Kristen Bottema-Beutel during a team building workshop that was part of a counselor-in- training program at a sports summer camp in the Western United States. In this workshop, there are five teenagers participating, two of whom have disabilities and three of whom are typically developing. The group is engaging in an activity involving a ‘photo challenge’ where the group is presented with two laminated pages of photos taken in different locations throughout the camp. The challenge is to guess where at camp each photo was taken.
In general, our data session look at a variety of data from everyday conversations and interaction in more constrained and institutional contexts. If you have some data you’d like to bring to the session – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
