Microsociological Contextualisation Analysis

  • Yannik Porsché
Part of the Postdisciplinary Studies in Discourse book series (PSDS)


This methodology assembles compatible tools from ethnomethodological Conversation Analysis, poststructural discourse analysis, and analytic ethnography. A focus on participants’ contextualisation cues in face-to-face conversation, written text, embodied ritual practices, and mass media communication enables an analysis of how certain practices instantiate what participants consider macro-societal phenomena. Conversation Analysis dissects the ephemeral details of social and institutional interaction and shows how participants’ referencing, pointing, orientation, and attributing generate territories of knowledge. Discourse analysis unravels polyphonic and hierarchical mappings of societal subject positions in single utterances in written texts. Theory-oriented, multi-sited ethnography allows the researcher to experience and compare longer sequences of institutional work and ritual practices, and to follow mass media communication in order to distinguish cases of goal-oriented practice in their social, material, and cultural contexts.
