The thematics of this summer school is prompted by the recent emergence on the global stage of a set of interlocking global crises - including climate, energy, food, water, finance - which demands a renewed interdisciplinary effort to understand how to mediate the future, the past and the present in ways that attend to equity, justice and rights. Discourse is understood as encompassing an interdisciplinary perspective on text, talk, genre, narrative, archive, document, image and rhetoric in all their modal, social and cultural forms-not only in terms of representation but more importantly in relation to action and practice. Practice, practices, practical reasoning and practical action are increasingly key elements of many recent approaches to discourse (e.g. microethnography, mediated discourse analysis and nexus analysis), but a dialogue between these approaches and the variants of practice theory that are being used in sophisticated ways in fields such as transition studies, anthropology, visual studies, etc. is urgently needed and holds much potential.

With the strong interdisciplinary focus of this summer school, we will be working with the following clusters:

Discourse/Style/Genre/Semiosis
Mediation/Modality/Action
Practice/Practical Reasoning/Practical Action
Transition/Intervention/Critique/Social Justice
Rights/Ethics/Care/Hope
Identity/Gender/'Race'/Ethnicity/Transnationality
Belonging/Citizenship/Linking/Relationality
Nature/Environment/Habitus/Context
Structure/Ordering/Organisation/Governmentality
Space/Movement/Mobility/Flow/Scale

Our summer school will interest students and scholars who work in the diverse fields of discourse studies, communication studies, practice studies, development studies, globalisation studies, media studies, political science, sociology, history, anthropology, transition studies, social movement studies, transition studies, communication activism, participatory communication, critical journalism studies, action research, and human-centred communication and informatics.
