Abstract:

This book draws together a rich variety of perspectives on discourse as a
facet of contemporary social change, representing a number of different
disciplines, theoretical positions and methods. The specific focus of the
volume is on discourse as a moment of social change, which can be seen to
involve objects of research which comprise versions of some or all of the
following research questions: How and where did discourses (narratives)
emerge and develop? How and where did they achieve hegemonic status? How
and where and how extensively have they been recontextualized? How and
where and to what extent have they been operationalized? The dialectical
approach indicated above implies that discourse analysis includes analysis
of relations between language (more broadly, semiosis) and its social
'context'.
