EHESS - Le France - salle 3  -  190, avenue de France  -  75013 Paris
Dans le cadre du séminaire Observer le travail/Workplace Studies, animé par Julia Velkovska et Christian Licoppe, Jon Hindmarsh et Nick Llewellyn, auteurs de l'ouvrage Organisation, Interaction and Practice: Studies of Etnomethodology and Conversation Analysis, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2010, interviendront autour de cet ouvrage et de leurs travaux en cours. Cette séance, qui s'inscrira également dans la série des séminaires du CEMS, vise à discuter des questions et des orientations actuelles des Workplace Studies. Elle se divisera en deux parties :

1) 10h - 11h 30

"Matters of Realism in Simulated Practice"
Jon Hindmarsh, Associate Professor in Work Practice and Technology, department of Management, King's College, Londres.

The use of simulators and simulations is very common in contemporary healthcare training. One key concern for those designing and studying the use of simulators concerns the types and degrees of “realism” achieved in the training experiences. In this paper I will discuss audio-visual recordings of the use of simulators in pre-clinical dental education and here we find that matters of realism are also of significant import to the participants themselves. Therefore the presentation will explore the ways in
which distinctions between the “real” and the “simulated” are discussed and managed. In particular the presentation will highlight how these events are constituted as “training” events in and through discussions of realism and it will also reflect on the potential practical implications of these findings for
simulator design and deployment.

2) 11h 45 - 13h15

"On the Materiality of Cash-Money"
Nick Llewellyn, Associate Professor in Organization Studies, Warwick Business School, Warwick, Coventry.

In this presentation I look at how people handle, manipulate, move and pass money. The data are video-recordings of people paying to enter an art gallery. The presentation imagines money as a complex semiotic system, akin to grammar, that has to be locally assembled and arranged so as to exhibit intentions, understanding and courses of action. Affordances of cash denominations and cards are contrasted in a presentation that explores the place of money in both transactions and gifts.
