Focus: Including discourse analysis in your research design
Minimum Education Level: BA
Special Qualifications: An interest in social practice

Through examples of transdisciplinary research design you learn to reason why and how to incorporate discourse analysis in your own field of study. The course provides a framework to make sense of social phenomena on the principle that language not only reflects society and change but also drives it. The focus is on analysing language use and other forms of communication to generate evidence of social phenomena, such as racism, politics, power, law, teaching, peace or war, and collaboration. We offer an inspiring program with expert lecturers from the VU Communication and Information Sciences and Organisation Discourse, and guests from Fribourg University and two leading centres of Critical Discourse Studies at Lancaster University, the University of East Anglia.

Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics
                      Discourse Analysis
