    Membership Categorisation Analysis (MCA) refers to the study of the range of practices that members of a given speech community deploy alongside complementary and aligned ethnomethods in the routine accomplishment of everyday social interaction. A core principle here is the anthropological notion of membership and its relationship to the categories of culture and society that form the stock in trade for the routine accomplishment and co-ordination of social life. Categories are central to social life and experience and an empirical understanding of their actual use in real-time at the situated and granular level can generate insights into a wide spectrum of social behaviours and problems.

    This free chapter comes from Advances in Membership Categorization Analysis which brings together the biggest names in MCA to provide a contemporary analysis of the field and a platform for emerging researchers and students to build upon
