Asking questions and doing other actions in political debates: How citizens speak in public

 Nynke van Schepen

 The thesis focuses on the analysis of citizens asking questions and doing other interactional actions in political public meetings. This research is carried out within the project 'Speaking in Public', funded by the SNF. The analyses will be based on data from eight video recorded plenary sessions that are part of the corpus Blandan (CAB), documenting over more than 6 years a participatory project in urban planning, concerning the transformation of a military site into a public park.
