Specialisation in Critical Discourse Studies: From canonic texts to current insights in the analysis of social platforms
The course provides students with an in-depth understanding of different methodological approaches in Critical Discourse Studies. The course reflects critically on both the canonical works that have a well-established position in the various social sciences (such as the seminal scholarship of Norman Fairclough and Ruth Wodak), and the latest developments in the analysis of social platforms (such as the work of Majid KhosraviNik and Markus Rheindorf). Special emphasis is placed on the exploration of the ethical implications of using Critical Discourse Studies in the student's own work. The course is designed to appeal to students from diverse social science backgrounds, allowing to share alternative perspectives on research questions that concern Critical Discourse Studies.
The course is open to doctoral students.
