About this event

"Prior studies in the field of micro-analytic approaches to social interaction have established that the temporal order of naturally occurring interaction does not only unfold in turn-by-turn basis (Sacks, & Schegloff, & Jefferson, 1974), but also as simultaneous co-construction of the turns, where the interactors “inhabit” each other’s actions (C. Goodwin, e.g. 2000, 2013, Streeck 2013). Nevertheless, the interactional accomplishment of simultaneous co-living and co-feeling of an emotional moment through collaborative gestures has remained somewhat understudied.

We present a naturally occurring, video-recorded data extract where two interactors collaboratively re-live a moment from the past that they both have experienced individually. In the extract, the interactors engage in a shared affective moment where they re-capture an activity from their past through collaboratively reliving it through co-produced gestures."
