Lorenza Mondada is professor of linguistics at University of Basel, Basel. Her research deals with social interaction in ordinary, professional, and institutional settings, within an ethnomethodological and conversation-analytic perspective. Her focus is on video analysis and multimodality, researching how the situated and endogenous organization of social interaction draws on a diversity of multimodal resources beside language, such as gesture, gaze, body posture, movements, object manipulations, and multisensorial practices. She has published extensively in Journal of Pragmatics, Discourse Studies, Language in Society, and ROLSI, and has co-edited various publications, including Touch in Social Interaction: Touch, Language, and Body (with Asta Cekaite, 2020). Mondada lives and works in Basel.
