The Embodied Turn in Research on Language and Social Interaction

Social attraction in video-mediated communication: The role of nonverbal affiliative behavior
Analysis of video-mediated communication in comparison to face-to-face (FTF) communication revealed that communicators in VMC smiled more and spoke louder, and more gaze aversion and a higher speech rate were found to influence social attraction.
Meaning-making across remote sites: How delays in transmission affect interaction
Through microanalysis of video data from a video-supported meeting in a geographically distributed company, the impact of delay in such communication systems that may be subject to transmission delays is examined.
Navigating the complex social ecology of screen-based activity in video-mediated interaction
Using conversation analysis for the examination of screen-recorded dyadic interactions, this study identifies a range of practices participants draw on to alert co-participants to incipient suspensions of talk and successfully ‘buy time’, which allows them to fully concentrate on their screen activity and ensure the progression of task accomplishment.
Methodological explorations of interpreter-mediated interaction: novel insights from multimodal analysis
Research in Dialogue Interpreting (DI) has traditionally drawn on qualitative analysis of verbal behaviour to explore the complex dynamics of these ‘triadic’ exchanges. Less attention has been paid
The production of a live TV-interview through mediated interaction
This paper studies live television production as an interactional process and focusses primarily on the mediated interaction between the director and the script in the control room, and the camera

The VideoWindow system in informal communication
The goal of the VideoWindow system project is to extend a shared space over considerable distance without impairing the quality of the interactions among users or requiring any special actions to establish a conversation.
Adding audio and video to an office environment
The aim of the VISION project was to determine the value added to an office system by incorporating audio and video, and suggests that high bandwidth communication is particularly effective for social, informal, communication.
A use of drawing surfaces in different collaborative settings
Observations suggest that the process of creating drawings may be as important to the design process as the drawings themselves and raise issues for further study, particularly with respect to computer support for collaborative drawing surface use.
VideoWhiteboard: video shadows to support remote collaboration
VideoWhiteboard is a prototype tool to support remote shared drawing activity. It provides a whiteboard-sized shared drawing space for collaborators who are located in remote sites. It allows each
User‐centered design of collaboration technology
This work has extensive studies of designers at work, developed the beginnings of a theory of distributed cognition, and is at the first stages of iterative testing and redesign of a prototype of a shared editor to support their work.
