Béatrice Arend is Senior Lecturer at the University of Luxembourg since 2006. She has a PhD in Social Psychology (Université Nancy 2). Prior to her doctoral studies, she studied Linguistics and French Literature (DEA, University of Strasbourg). For several years, she worked as a teacher (French Language and Literature) in Luxemburgish Secondary School.

Referring to bakhtinian Dialogism in accordance with a Conversation Analysis informed approach, her research addresses primarily the question of how people organise interactional work and common understanding of that work by communicating. This interest and her prior experience as a teacher in Luxemburgish Secondary School have led her to conduct research on joint activities in educational contexts: joint problem solving in mathematics, teacher-student talk, second language learning in multilingual classrooms.

She relies on video analysis to construct her data and adopts an extended conversation analytic approach focussing on participants’ multimodally embodied conduct during interactions.

Her research interest and her background have provided the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary work and to develop expertise in human-robot interaction analysis.
