Sgier - Edited

This three-day workshop aims to introduce students and participants to the basics of social science discourse analysis.

The workshops starts with an introduction to the theoretical and epistemological bases of (poststructuralist) discourses analysis, then moves on to practical exercises with various types of data (for example media data, speeches or interviews) whose aim is to illustrate how discourse analytical research is concretely done. These exercises will also contend with concerns such as validity criteria, the nature and limits of interpretation, and how to write up this type of research convincingly.

Finally, we will also tackle issues more generally related to the whole research process, such as the limits of discourse analytic research, or how to collect data that are adequate for discourse analytic research (in interviews for instance).
