The Advancing Multimodality in Conversation Analysis Summer School (Basel 21-24.6.2022) aims at developing training, analytic experiences, and discussions about Multimodal Conversation Analysis. Multimodal analyses of video data have been booming since a few years now: the Summer School aims at reflecting about key advances as well as about how to further expand the field. In particular, it aims at developing both the complexity and systematicity of multimodal analysis. It tackles central topics such as sequentiality and temporality of complex multimodal Gestalts, advances in the analysis of embodied practices and future trends in multimodal Conversation Analysis. 

     These aims are implemented by proposing two series of advanced courses on multimodality and sequentiality. The first series offers hands-on workshops based on video data (in situ, in Basel), demonstrating and discussing how collections of complex multimodal phenomena are achieved. Workshops will be held by Florence Oloff (Mannheim, D) and Burak Tekin (Ankara, TR). The second series offers lectures (remote, on Zoom) on conceptual topics such as action formation, sequentiality, accountability, embodiment and sensoriality. Talks will be held by Anita Pomerantz (Albany, US), John Heritage (UCLA, US), Aug Nishizaka (Chiba, JP), and Jeffrey Robinson (Portland, US).  

      The participants are young scholars who have already some training in multimodal CA and are interested in exercising and further elaborating their skills in building and analyzing collections of interactional phenomena, as well as developing their conceptual vision of multimodality.
