Some of the empirical studies conducted by the research group members are already part of ongoing theoretical and methodological discussions within the network Theories of Space, which is mainly concerned with issues regarding the public sphere and the virtual space. The discussions cover theories regarding the production of interactional space, as well as the relationship between architecture, language, and the body.
Since 2014 there exists a cooperation agreement between members of the research group Interactional Spaces and the pragmatics department of the Institut für Deutsche Sprache in Mannheim (link to project "Multimodale Interaktion"). One of the main research objects of this cooperation is the development and exchange of methods connected to the transcription of multimodal data.
Members of the “Interactive Discoveries” project team work closely with colleagues from the division exhibition and didactics of the Science Center Technorama in Winterthur.
