In this workshop titled “Designing, Building and Using Data Banks of Interactional Corpora from a Conversation Analytic Perspective”, Arnulf Deppermann, Henrike Helmer and Silke Reineke from the Leibniz Institute for the German Language (Leibniz-Institut für Deutsche Sprache (IDS), Mannheim) will give presentations on the design and application of large machine-readable corpora of spoken interaction, drawing on the IDS corpus FOLK (Forschungs- und Lehrkorpus / Research and Teaching Corpus) to discuss and illustrate the challenges of creating and using them.
They will address workflows, corpus research tools and the specifics of audio and video data gathered to document social interactions in authentic settings. They will discuss the potential and the constraints of using large corpora and their tools to support interactional studies from the perspective of Conversation Analysis. There will also be an open discussion on the possibilities and limitations of Open Research Data, allowing the participants to exchange views on current trends towards sharing research data and the conditions under which they can be made available to the scientific community.
The event is organised by Lorenza Mondada (University of Basel) on behalf of CHORD-talk-in-interaction.
