Snapshot of Professor Madeline Maxwell's Scholarly Work
in Conflict Resolution
With the support of UT Dean of Communication Ellen Wartella,
the Joe W. Neal Centennial Fellowship in International Communication,
The Dean of Students, and the Athletic Department, I am running this pilot
project. Students provide conflict intervention services through the UT
Conflict Resolution Center that will open in the Student Services
Building this coming fall. One of the goals of the project is to analyze
the communication in these interactions.
Join the Language and Culture group in the department and some friends
around campus for weekly data sessions. If you have natural communication
data that you've videotaped, we'd love to study it with you. These are
very informal sessions in which we focus on some moment of interaction
and discuss the possibilities for study. Summer 1998 we are meeting Wednesdays
1-2:30. We meet in the Speech Lab, CMA 5.114.
Communication (In)Competence: Disabling Evaluations in Clinical and
Dana Kovarsky of the University of Rhode Island, Judith Duchan
of SUNY Buffalo, and I have edited this book for Lawrence Erlbaum Publishers.
The papers include conversation analysis, ethnography, and discourse analysis
of the communication of individuals, such as patients in psychotherapy
or a student of a religious leader, who are not considered to have any
disorder or disability, as well as those who have been diagnosed with a
language disorder. We anticipate a fall publication date.
Island Roundtable Some of the book authors and other colleagues
met in June for the second year in Rhode Island to talk about interaction,
focusing on Diagnosis as Cultural Practice. The link is to some photos
from our weekend.
