Summary: Emotion is present anywhere in social life and therefore readily observable in the activities that people normally participate in. Yet in research on second language learning, emotion has predominantly been studied through various forms of self-report, including interviews, surveys, and diaries. This talk will examine the theoretical perspectives that inform this research, show how each of the three discursive formats generates particular kinds of data, and review the main strategies that are used to analyze the data produced with each method. Finally we will consider alternative approaches to generating and analyzing data on emotion in second language use and learning and discuss how language education may benefit from such alternative perspectives.

Gabriele Kasper is Professor of Second Language Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Her teaching and research focus on language and social interaction, in particular on applying conversation analysis to multilingual interaction, second language learning and assessment, and standard research methods in applied linguistics. Recent co-edited volumes are Assessing Second Language Pragmatics (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) and Emotion in Multilingual Interaction (Benjamins, 2016). In special collaboration with the Temple University Japan Distinguished Lecturer Series
