The Centre for Applied Interaction Research (CAIR) facilitates research and links between groups and individuals undertaking applied research into normal and disordered human interaction, with an emphasis on analysing video or audio-taped naturally occurring conversations that take place in health, social and education settings. CAIR brings together academics and stakeholders from a number of institutions, clinical and education settings, around the UK. CAIR members are particularly interested in the use and application of conversation analytical methods and practices.
