Lorenza Mondada

Unversität Basel

Lorenza Mondada is professor for linguistics at the University of Basel and Finnish Distinguished Professor at the University of Helsinki. Her research deals with social interaction in ordinary, professional and institutional settings, within an ethnomethodological and conversation analytic perspective. Her work focuses on how the situated and endogenous organization of social interaction draws on multimodal resources such as, beside language, gesture, gaze, body posture, body movements and objects manipulations. She has extensively published in Journal of Pragmatics, Discourse Studies, Language in Society, ROLSI and co-edited several collective books for CUP, Routledge, Benjamins, De Gruyter. 

 

Simona Pekarek Doehler

Universität Neuchâtel

Simona Pekarek Doehler is professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. In her research she seeks to understand how participants in talk-in-interaction use grammar as a resource to accomplish social actions and how, in turn, linguistic resources emerge in and through the process of interaction. A second line of her research is concerned with the development of interactional competence in a second language, and the use of conversation analysis for longitudinal research on that development. She has recently co-edited, with J.K. Hall and J. Hellermann, L2 Interactional Competence and Development (2011).
