The course introduces participants to discourse analysis starting from its philosophical underpinnings to recent developments and debates. It then presents and discusses various approaches as well as main principles and key literatures on discourse analysis. Finally, the course illustrates analytic tools through the use of examples and engages participants with hands-on analysis.
The course has a dual aim: (i) to introduce participants to discourse analysis as a qualitative method in the service of analysing qualitative data (discourse) and (ii) to discuss discourse analysis as a paradigm. In this way, the course is a workshop focused on the analysis of discourse and also on the reasons for opting for discursive approaches while considering the assumptions they entail.
