The IIEMCA Conference 2015 will bring together members of the international community of scholars in ethnomethodology and conversation analysis to consider broad areas of research interest, and especially to address the conference theme on how people organize, conduct and accomplish their activities and interactions for ‘living the material world’. Materiality figures, for example, as features of the physical surround, gesture and the body, space and location, mobility, objects, and multimodality.

Living the material world

The IIEMCA conference is an event happening every two years. The most recent conference, IIEMCA 2015, took place in Kolding, Denmark, from the 4th-7th August 2015.
