Natalie Flint is a PhD researcher in the School of Communication and Media at Ulster University. Natalie completed her undergraduate degree in English Language and Linguistics at York St John University (2016) and achieved the Research Prize, Programme Prize, and Vice Chancellor’s Medal. Following this, she gained a Masters by Research degree in Linguistics, also at York St John University. In September 2017, she joined Ulster University to work on a full-time PhD.
Natalie’s research uses conversation analysis to explore the sequential organisation of talk-in-interaction. More specifically her interests lie in understanding the interactional conflicts that occur in everyday settings, and how these conflicts are remedied. Her PhD focuses on resistance in family interactions, focusing on members’ orientations to authority and categories. In previous research, she investigated (dis)affiliation and remedial accounts in initial interactions.
Natalie's broad research interests are the structural organisation of naturally occurring talk. More specifically, Natalie's research interests are mundane, everyday interactions, with a focus on interactional 'conflicts'. Her current research is on resistance in family interactions, with a focus on the sequential organisation of resistance, and how members orient to epistemic authority, deontic authority and categories in 'resistance sequences' in these family interactions. Ultimately, Natalie's research aims to address issues of action and interaction, considering how actions are achieved and orientations to the social order in everyday interaction.
Natalie teaches in the School of Communication and Media. She currently teaches on the following modules: Communication and Language (CMM107) and Talk, Interaction and Social Organisation (CMM320).
Natalie's PhD thesis explores sequential resistance in family interactions, with a focus on the sequential organisation of resistance, and how members orient to epistemic authority, deontic authority and category in these family interactions. She is particularly interested in how epistemics and deontics are oriented to by invoking category.
