Tiina Eilittä

I am a doctoral researcher in the research project iTask: Linguistic and embodied features of interactional multitasking, funded by the Eudaimonia Institute. In my thesis, I use conversation analysis to study interaction between adults and children in busy everyday situations where multiple activities take place simultaneously. I am interested in examining the interactional practices that children use when summoning adults at moments when the adults are busy with other involvements. My research data consist of video recordings of interaction in families and early childhood education, collected in Finland and the UK.
