DeXus is the name for the Discourse Nexus summer school, which was
held very successfully for the first time in 2003 at the Centre for
Discourse Studies, Aalborg University. DeXus focuses on innovative
research in discourse studies and its application to a variety of
settings and data sets. Participants will engage in a mix of lectures,
workshops, group work, individual consultations and discussion

The goal of DeXus is to create a space in which attendees can discuss
the latest moves in discourse studies, apply approaches in discourse
studies to 'real world' problems, learn hands-on in a positive
environment and find new relays between academic work and social

Keynote lectures will focus on the following themes:
 - Revisiting Ideology, Hegemony and Identity in Discourse: Evidence
 from Institutional Discourse 
 - Rethinking Analytical Practice: Conceptual, Methodological, and
 Political Implications
 - Discourse Analysis: Is It Useful; Is It Enough?�
 Six Areas of Development in Contemporary Discourse Analysis

Workshops will be held on the following topics:
 - Discourse, Gender and Linguistic Repertoires: An African Viewpoint
 - CDA in Practice: Paradoxical Effects of the Iraq war on
 European Identity
 - The Discourses of Food in the World System

More lectures and workshops to be announced soon. Check the website.

The summer school is international and open to all researchers, PhD and
graduate students.
