Tracking Discourses : Politics, Identity & Social Change Paperback / softback
Edited by Annika Egan Sjolander, Jenny Gunnarsson Payne
Discourse Theory (DT) and Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) are theoretical traditions that have gained intense research interest in recent decades.
Both are concerned with critical studies of politics, identity, and social change with a focus on issues of power and language, yet the dialogue between DT and CDA scholars has been negligible until only recently.
In this book twelve researchers explore the opportunities presented by an increased exchange of ideas between the two traditions.
The authors examine what closer collaboration could offer, both theoretically and empirically, in an interdisciplinary context.
The Scandinavian reception, development, and use of DT and CDA are presented for the first time in a concise way.
The studies in Tracking Discourses are of pivotal interest to the practical application of theoretical concepts and the empirical analysis of specific discourses based on one or both of the analytical perspectives.
The case studies presented are valuable sources for comparison with similar research undertaken in other countries and contexts.
