2. Critical paradigms in Discourse Analysis;
3. An inter-disciplinary perspective on Discourse Analysis;
4. Current theoretical issues in Discourse Analysis;
5. Discourse Analysis and its interface with related disciplines (e.g. pragmatics, conversation analysis, rhetoric, stylistics, applied linguistics, etc.)
