  1. ‘We Don’T Need to Abide by That!’: Negotiating Professional Roles in Problem-Solving Talk at Work.Jo Angouri & Kyoungmi Kim - 2019 - Discourse and Communication 13 (2):172-191.
    In this article, we focus on problem solving talk in the business meeting event. We zoom in on the processes of formulating, negotiating and ratifying an issue as a problem, and we argue that individuals negotiate their stances in relation to their perceived/projected professional roles. The processes of problem-solving are, simultaneously, processes of self/other positioning. We take an Interactional Sociolinguistic perspective and draw on audio-recorded meeting talk collected in a multinational corporate workplace. Our analysis shows that interactants draw on issues (...)

    ‘Get Me the Airway There’: Negotiating Leadership in Obstetric Emergencies.Dimitrios Siassakos, Katherine Bristowe, Stephen O’Brien, Jo Angouri & Polina Mesinioti - 2020 - Discourse and Communication 14 (2):150-174.
    The article discusses leadership enactment in medical emergencies. We draw on video recordings of simulated obstetric emergencies and investigate how senior clinicians ‘do being’ the leader discursively in the spatiomaterial context of the emergency room. We take an interactional analysis approach, combining conversation analysis and interactional sociolinguistics and look specifically into the ways in which professional roles do interactional control using directives and questions in the material space of the obstetric room. We discuss this interactional performance in relation to the (...)
