Meeting Description

Inaugural World Conference: Ideology and Discourse Analysis (IDA). 'Rethinking
Political Frontiers and Democracy in a New World Order'

Over the course of the last 25 years, the Essex School in Ideology and Discourse
Analysis has established itself as an important and distinctive alternative to
mainstream social science approaches. Established in 1982 by Professor Ernesto
Laclau, the intellectual programme in Ideology and Discourse Analysis draws on a
wide range of traditions and disciplines to develop a novel set of conceptual
tools intended to enhance theoretical, empirical, and normative research.

Taking an anti-essentialist conception of discourse as a central theoretical
category, the IDA programme draws on and engages with post-marxism,
post-structuralism, psychoanalysis, post-Heideggerian phenomenology and
hermeneutics, post-analytical philosophy, among others. Discourse theory, as
deployed by the IDA research programme has thus come to be associated with a
series of proper names, such as Marx, Gramsci, Althusser, Saussure, Barthes,
Laclau and Mouffe, Lacan, Zizek, Derrida, Wittgenstein, and Foucault.

It is in the context of its now quarter-century history that we are pleased to
announce the inaugural IDA world conference, held at Roskilde University,
Denmark. This conference aims to support the continuing development of the IDA
approach and to establish dialogues with related approaches. The conference is
thus designed to offer opportunities for discussion and debate on a range of
theoretical, methodological and substantive topics of analysis.

Panel topics might include:
Political theory
Discourse Analysis
Critical Management Studies
Critical Policy Analysis
Policy Networks
Political Economy
New World Orders
