Meeting Description:

In this section of the 41st Linguistic Colloqium in Mannheim, the focus is
exclusively set on methodical and methodological questions concerning
discourse-linguistic analyses following Foucault (following reflects the
intended ambiguity of the German preposition nach, which means 'according to'
and 'after').

A number of linguistic titles from diverse disciplines, related more or less
intensely to Michel Foucault's discourse theory, have been published in recent
years. However, since both the terminology and the methods used are that
multi-faceted, a complete overview is hardly possible. If the analysis of social
discourses is not only to be a subsidiary linguistic activity, but is to become
a new discipline (whatever it will look like), an intense reflexion about
concepts, methods and aims is inevitable.

We would like to invite you to such a reflexion on the occassion of the 41st
Linguistic Colloquium in Mannheim
(http://www.phil.uni-mannheim.de/lingkoll06/english.html), entitled ''The Order
of Standard and the Differentiation of Discourses'', which takes place from 6th
till 8th September 2006 at the University of Mannheim.

In our section on ''Methods in Linguistic Discourse Analysis following Foucault
(Methoden der Diskurslinguistik nach Foucault)'', the focus is exclusively set
on methodical and methodological questions concerning discourse-linguistic
analyses following Foucault (following reflects the intended ambiguity of the
German preposition nach, which means 'according to' and 'after').

The following subjects are suggested, amongst others:

- the presentation of concrete discourse-linguistic methods
- a discussion of potential new methodical approaches
- reports about current, completed and envisaged projects
- a discussion of basic methodic questions (e.g. qualitative vs. quantitative
approaches, possibilities and limitations of corpus-based work)
- a discussion about the relationship between concrete methodic procedures and
the theoretic and epistemologic conceptions.

Please send your proposals, including an abstract (max. 600 words), by 1st
January 2006 to one of the following adresses:
