FASS517 Discourse Analysis
Sessions will be structured around the presentation and discussion of an area of Discourse Analysis. Each week, there will be a key reading, which course participants will be expected to read and think about in advance. Each session will include a workshop element, in which the approach in focus will be demonstrated and then course participants in small groups will apply it to some of their own data.
By the end of the course, participants will be familiar with a range of approaches to critical discourse analysis and the relevance of these to their own work, and will have gained confidence in using this approach in the analysis of texts.
