Professor invited to talk at The Royal Institution
The lecture entitled, The interactional ‘nudge’: Talking about talk from the mundane to the dramatic, explores how conversation analysis works to provide a scientific understanding of talk as it unfolds in mundane and dramatic settings.
Elizabeth discusses how talk is organised and shows how small variations in what we say impacts on what others say and do next. She will demonstrate how her research findings can underpin communication training and challenge assumptions about how talk works.
Founded in 1799, The Royal Institution is devoted to scientific education and research. Since 1825 some of the world’s greatest scientific minds, including 50 Nobel Prize winners, have shared their latest research with the public through the organisation.
