Studies of language and social practice have often been dis-embodied and un-situated in space, time, and interaction. This is true even for some traditions that otherwise pay close attention to situated activity (e.g., conversational and discourse analyses that focus primarily on linguistic signs, ignoring material/ecological environments). This open reading group will explore multidisciplinary approaches to theorizing the body-in-interaction in material/ecological worlds and to researching and representing embodied situated activity.
