Note: all our courses are taught online this year.
Research has shown that the movements a person makes with their hands while talking relate to processes of thinking for speaking, the culture(s) the speaker is part of, and the local context of communication.This course will provide research skills for the analysis of speakers’ hand movements in video recordings of spoken interaction. It will consider how we can “get a handle” on gesture in order to incorporate it into the study of language and communication.
