Projects in Interactional Linguistics

Uwe KĂĽttner


NOTE: This course is designed for students who successfully completed the MSK module (including MSK3) and consider writing their master’s thesis in CA/IL. Whether you plan to do this in/on German or English is irrelevant.

This advanced course is designed to help students achieve the following Learning Outcome:

Students develop a topic and a feasible research question for their master’s thesis in CA/IL and ideally start pursuing it by

- identifying (potential) research gaps,
- searching for and screening relevant literature,
- choosing appropriate data material,
- practicing the necessary basic skills, such as GAT2 transcription, sequential analysis etc.,
- adapting their initial project idea based on first insights (if necessary),
- critically commenting on their peers’ proposals and achievements in these regards, and finally
- writing a project proposal

in order to be able to present and defend their project as well as their approach in the colloquium (FP2) and, ultimately, to write a stylistically and substantively adequate MA thesis in the field of CA/IL.

Requirements: Successful completion of the MSK module (including MSK3)




To obtain credits for this course, students are required to

a) deliver two short presentations (a project idea and a progress report),
b) write a (2 page) project proposal,
c) and to provide a number of written reviews/feedback for project proposal drafts by their peers(how many exactly will depend on the number of participants and be specified at the beginning of the course)
