Discourse Analysis and Qualitative Research

June 15 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This session will take students through an approach to interpreting qualitative research based on the discourse-historical view of Ruth Wodak (and others). It will take students through a range of different examples of texts, asking them in each case to consider the persons and objects under consideration, their characteristics, arguments deployed by actors, and the discursive strategies being utilised by those speaking and acting. It therefore will aim to get students understanding the importance of both the empirical and theoretical context of the text(s) under consideration, how detailed textual analysis can help us achieve additional analytical depth over the discursive strategies being employed, and what discourse analysis can contribute to a research project.

Delivered by Prof. Ian Greener, University of Strathclyde
