Квазиформальное взаимодействие в ситуации учебного процесса
This paper considers the situation of ethnographic observation of zoologist’s scientific practice at an outdoor school dedicated to science and technology studies. However, in the process of observation the object of study is changing, since the zoologist sees her aim at the school as pedagogical. The ambiguity of the situation is illustrated with help of transcript analysis of conversation. The ambiguity consists of situation having characteristic features of both formal and mundane types of interaction. Due to structural organization analysis of that situation it is possible to say that considered interaction is quasi-formal because its interaction order does not prescribe desirable behavior but only restricts possible one. Philosophical implications of the theoretical frame undertaken by the author to better grasp empirical material are considered in the end of the paper.
