9780521389389: Conducting Interaction: Patterns of Behavior in Focused Encounters (Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics)

This book makes available five classic studies of the organisation of behaviour in face-to-face interaction. It includes Adam Kendon's well-known study of gaze-direction in interaction, his study of greetings, of the interactional functions of facial expression and of the spatial organisation of naturally occurring interaction, as recorded by means of film or videotape. They represent some of the best work undertaken within the 'natural history' tradition of interaction studies, as originally formulated in the work of Bateson, Birdwhistell and Goffman. Chapter 2, written especially for this new book, provides an historical and theoretical discussion of this tradition, and a new final chapter takes up the theme of the organisation of attention in interaction. The introduction provides details of the circumstances of how each paper came to be written. Each of the papers reprinted is accompanied by a short postscript, placing the work in the context of more recent research. Several of the papers presented in this volume, although widely referred to, have long been difficult to obtain. Their republication will be warmly welcomed by all students and teachers who are concerned with face-to-face interaction.

Book Description:

This book makes available five classic studies of the organisation of behaviour in face-to-face interaction. It includes Adam Kendon's well-known study of gaze-direction in interaction, his study of greetings, of the interactional functions of facial expression and of the spatial organisation of naturally occurring interaction, as recorded by means of film or videotape.

Review:

"This book is a landmark in the development of naturalistic research on social interaction. It powerfully demonstrates the analytic rewards of utilizing film and video to explicate the fine details of in situ human conduct, and provides a distinctive methodological orientation for an anthropology of social interaction." American Anthropologist

"This volume provides a broad selection of work by a pioneering and influential investigator of face-to-face interaction... Kendon's chapters remain required reading for those concerned with basic interaction processes, as well as an appropriately cautionary note for those interested in using those processes to illuminate other major psychological and social phenomena." Contemporary Psychology

"The book is clearly written and should be easy to follow... It would obviously be of value for a course in in interational sociolonguistics, but would also be useful for students of psychology and psychiatry. It is possible that even students and teachers of drama might find it interesting and useful for its detailed analysis of how people convey meaning in interactions." Canadian Journal of Linguistics
