The humanities project in linguistics is led by the University of Freiburg and will be implemented jointly with the Universities of Basel, Haute-Alsace and Strasbourg. The aim is to combine current research approaches at the four universities in three countries on the topic of “(dis)agreement & (dis)alignment” (i.e. conflict potential in discussions) and to further develop them with innovative methods in multimodality and multimedia. A special focus is placed on the question of how moments of conflict are negotiated in interaction using linguistic and physical resources. The project is supported by Eucor – The European Campus in the “Research and Innovation” category of the Seed Money scheme.
