In Pursuit of Conversation Analysis: An Interview with Professor John Heritage
Takahashi, Junko; Song, Gahye
Working Papers in Applied Linguistics & TESOL, v18 n1 p59-63 2018
The authors had the privilege of speaking over dinner with John Heritage, a plenary speaker at the eighth annual Conference of "The Language and Social Interaction Working Group" (LANSI) held at Teachers College, Columbia University. Dr. Heritage is Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and one of the key scholars in the discipline of conversation analysis (CA). With this interview, the authors return to where John Heritage started: at the University of Leeds, England, where he was a graduate student focusing on what first made him interested in pursuing CA. They learn about some of the eye-opening events in his life and the past endeavors and accomplishments that helped him reach where he is today.
