‘The Composite Semiotics of Repair’ – Updates on Methodology

During my PhD research‚ÜĎ (.)
I transcribed sixTEen‚ÜĎ hours of face-to-face interaction
for talk (.) errors (.) laughters=sniffs pauses (.)

facial expressions=gaze movements and voice qualia (.)
like PItch, fre:quency energy
(.) and their variations.

Mining human data is an extremely complex and painful exercise. ¬†However I guess one can eventually reach a decent level of empirical precision and also get to contemplate a number¬†of¬†interesting insights on ‘errors’ and their¬†propagation.

ISRE 2013 Conference at UC Berkeley- International Society for Research on Emotions 2013

In April 2013, I became a Junior Member of the ISRE Society ¬†¬†[International Society for Research on Emotions]. ¬†So last ¬†August 2013, I travelled from China [where I was collecting the last set of data for my Phd work] to United States, California, Berkeley. At UC Berkeley I had the great pleasure to attend the 2013 – biannual conference of the ISRE Society .¬†I presented a paper titled, ‘A proto-Language of Emotions? Response Cries as an Interactional Achievement‘.

At the conference, some groundbreaking results in physiology and the neurobiological basis of emotions were presented by a team of nobel Laureates  . It eventually turns out that shorter telomeres tend to correlate with a long list of clinical psychological diseases and biological ones. 

 

In this occasion [2013 ISRE society Conference], I also have witnessed   Dr. W. Gerrod Parrott, Professor of Psychology, Georgetown University, passing the baton of ISRE presidency to Arvid Kappas, Professor of Psychology at Jacobs University. and finally, I had the great pleasure to meet Prof. Dr. George Lakoff and Prof. Dr. Paul Ekman and engage with them in academic and methodological discussions.
