Review Essay: (Re)Discovering Harvey Sacks: Methodology, Materials, and Inspirations
Keywords:Harvey Sacks, ethnomethodology, conversation analysis, membership categorization analysis, practice theory, qualitative methodology, Lectures on Conversation
Harvey SACKS is considered one of the pioneers of ethnomethodological conversation analysis. Forty years after his death, a volume has been presented in which researchers from different generations illustrate many of his central concepts and approaches in the context of their own research. Thus, this anthology is not a typical textbook for the introduction to ethnomethodological conversation analysis, but offers an overview of SACKS' rich and lasting work in research practice. In 17 contributions, sociological, linguistic, and didactic approaches, among others, are combined, and this interdisciplinary orientation proves how flexible the research program shaped by SACKS still is. As indicated by the subtitle of the volume, in addition to methodological discussions and diversity of material, readers will find inspiration for (re)discovering SACKS and his work for further development.
