Personal profile

Research interests

Gitte Rasmussen's research interests concern ethnomethodological and conversation analytic (EMCA) studies of social interaction. Her research focuses on people's practices and actions in social interaction; on how practices and actions are fitted bodily and multimodally to the material environment in which the interaction is carried out; on how practices and actions are designed for specific recipients that are ascribed to specific social categories. For the last 10 years Gitte Rasmussen’s research has primarily concerned interactions involving participants with impairments, e.g. dementia.

Of interest is any kind of interaction, whether it is carried out face-to-face on location or through online platforms; whether it entails primarily talk-in-interaction, intercorporeality, the use of material tangible objects, or the use of e.g. robot technologies; whether the practices and actions are exclusively geared to a social interactional apparatus of co-present individuals or entail actions that are geared to the engagement with abstract (e.g. institutional) systems and (e.g. digital) technologies.
