Please note: This course will be taught as an online course until further notice. Once you have registered for it on PULS and have been admitted, I will e-mail you via PULS to provide you with online access to the course material (via moodle) and other resources. Course requirements may be subject to change. It is possible that classes can be switched back to classroom teaching (Präsenzlehre) at some point during the semester. If this happens, I will let you know and classes will take place at the times and in the rooms originally scheduled. Thank you for your understanding.


Fostered by the development of mass media like the radio or the TV, the broadcasted news interview has become one of the most important institutionalized sites for the production of public discourse. Needless to say perhaps, the news interview is a highly specialized form of interaction. In this course, we will develop an analytic apparatus for investigating how specific institutional constraints and normative expectations shape this form of interaction as well as the conduct of those (inter-)acting in it. Among others, we will look at the particular way(s) in which the news interview is organized, what sorts of (journalistic) considerations inform the way in which interviewers ask questions and how interviewees deal with those questions (e.g., answering, resisting or evading questions).


The admissions for this course have taken place. If you enrolled for this course after Apr 24 and still wish to participate in it, please send an e-mail to: ukuettne@uni-potsdam.de
