ISAB-Diskurs offers an interdisciplinary approach to discourse analysis. From the perspective of language studies, literary studies and media studies, ISAB-Diskurs looks into the theories and models concerning discourse analysis. In continuation of ISAB-TeSta 2012 (Interdisziplinäre Sommerakademie Bremen-Textualität der Stadt/Interdisciplinary Summer Academy Bremen - Textuality of the City) and ISAB-SuKo 2013 (Interdisziplinäre Sommerakademie Bremen - Sprache und Kolonialismus /Interdisciplinary Summer Academy Bremen - Language and Colonialism), ISAB-Diskurs 2014 will focus on German Studies.

- A sound knowledge of basic concepts in German Literary Studies and Linguistics is appreciated.

The following four key concepts represent the interdisciplinary dispersion of Discourse Analysis: 'Criticism','Commemoration', discourse encoding of 'Emotion', and 'Postcolonialism'. The key concept of 'Postcolonialism' can be seen as a continuation of ISAB-SuKo 2013 (Interdisziplinäre Sommerakademie Bremen - Sprache und Kolonialismus /Interdisciplinary Summer Academy Bremen - Language and Colonialism) and creates a link to the research on Language in Colonial Contexts and (Post)Colonial Literary Studies, two of foci of the University of Bremen.

The language of this summer school will be German (minimum B2-level required).
