Academic reviews

Dr. Maximilian Krug Interpersonal Communication Research
In my current research, I investigate conflict in interpersonal communication . I explore disagreements and disalignments in multimodal face-to-face interaction and examine incivility and reactance in online communication . Furthermore, I engage in science communication and ask myself how scientific findings can be presented to the public in a meaningful way.
Abstract: By taking a conversation- analytical approach, this study uses mobile eye tracking and audiovisual recordings of theater rehearsals to examine how people who are interacting with each other simultaneously coordinate relevant activities. Of special significance is the structural compatibility of the modes of participation in the co- relevant activities, as different methods of coordination are used depending on the degree of (in-)compatibility.
