Title: Advances in Discourse Studies
Edited By: Vijay K. Bhatia
John Flowerdew
Rodney H. Jones
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/Advances-in-Discourse-Studies-isbn9780415398107
Description:

Methods of approaching the study of discourse have developed rapidly in the
last ten years, influenced by a growing interdisciplinary spirit among
linguistics and anthropology, sociology, cognitive and cultural psychology
and cultural studies, as well as among established sub-fields within
linguistics itself. Among the more recent developments are an increasing
‘critical’ turn in discourse analysis, a growing interest in historical,
ethnographic and corpus-based approaches to discourse, more concern with
the social contexts in which discourse occurs, the social actions that it
is used to take and the identities that are constructed through it, as well
as a revaluation of what counts as ‘discourse’ to include multi-modal texts
and interaction.

Advances in Discourse Studies brings together contributions from leading
scholars in the field, investigating the historical and theoretical
relationships between new advances in discourse studies and pointing
towards new directions for the future of the discipline. Featuring
discussion questions, classroom projects and recommended readings at the
end of each section, as well as case studies illustrating each approach
discussed, this is an invaluable resource for students of interdisciplinary
discourse analysis.
