Can discourse analysis techniques adequately deal with complex social
phenomena? What does 'interdisciplinarity' mean for theory building
and the practise of empirical research? This volume provides an
innovative and original debate on critical theory and discourse
analysis, focussing on the extent to which CDA can and should draw on
the theory and methodology of a range of discilplines within the
social sciences. The contributors to the volume are themselves
international and multi-disciplinary, and the collection is organised
to address in turn the development of CDA over the past two decades,
the deabte on interdisciplinarity, impliactions for discourse -
analytical theory and applications.
