Host Institution: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
Coordinating Institution: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
Dates: 06-Jun-2015 - 17-Jul-2015
Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Focus: Language not only reflects social change, but also drives social change. This course provides a framework to make sense of these phenomena through discourse analysis. It offers advanced academic skills. Through examples of various research designs, you learn how to incorporate discourse analysis into your own field of study.
Minimum Education Level: BA
Methods covered include:
- transdisciplinary research design
- text analysis and content analysis
- ethnography, conversation analysis
- framing and subjectivity
- historical discourse analysis
- context and data selection
You are required to participate actively in the group discussions and assignments, contributing perspectives from your own discipline so that you learn to account for the choices you make in your research design and its discourse analytic component.
VU University Amsterdam and its Network Institute have a long tradition of fostering transdisciplinary research. The tutors in this course are closely associated with that effort: Amsterdam Research on Text and Talk in Institutional Settings (ARTTIS) specializes in effective communication; the Amsterdam Critical Discourse Community (ACDC) encourages academic dialogue across disciplines; there are courses in Discourse Analysis and Active Entrepreneurship in the university’s Economics and Business Studies Programme. Moreover, your tutors include senior lecturers and professors from the world’s leading centre for critical discourse analysis at Lancaster University (UK). Together, we assure of plenty of classroom interaction.
