Abstract

The paper addresses the following problem: «how is it possible to treat the classic (in the social sciences) theme of gender from a coherent ethnomethodological point of view?». Previous ethnomethodological contributions to the subject are briefly reviewed, in particular the work within the field of conversation analysis and Garfinkel's work on Agnes. An alternative interpretation of this study is given. Later theoretical and empirical studies (for example Kessler&McKenna, 1978; West&Zimmerman on interruptions) are also re-examined. It is suggested that, when confronted with fundamental ethnomethodological principles like `relevance' and `indifference', they present a number of shortcomings. Propositions for new developments and directions of study are made in both the disciplines of conversation analysis and ethnomethodology.
