Call for Papers: Workshop Direct interaction methods of research, epistemology, and conceptualization

The aim of this workshop is to investigate in a collaborative way which research methods, which types of investigation and which underlying epistemological models are able to capture interaction with its specificities. We wish to cross different conceptualizations and methodologies, in the study of diverse interactions that go beyond human interaction: human-animal, human-machine, etc

One of the ambitions of this joint research work is also to philosophically legitimize the field of interactions as a distinct field of investigation.

We invite researchers who work on interaction in different fields (philosophy, linguistics, psychology, conversational analysis, etc.) to submit their work and thoughts in progress for consideration during the workshop.

The following questions may guide your proposal, within your own discipline:

- What is interaction? How do you define it? Is it a concept? A simple notion?

- How do you analyze it? With what tools?

- Which interaction model(s) do you use in your field of knowledge? How theoretical models are constructed and applied to empirical situations?

You are invited to present a work in progress, a first draft to be reworked after the workshop.

After a review process, the final version of your papers may be sent for publication for a Supplement to Issue of STUDIA UNIVERSITATIS BABES-BOLYAI - PHILOSOPHIA. The articles will be indexed in WoS-ESCI and are open access.
