This workshop, run by artsmethods@manchester, provides an overview of discursive practices in various Arts and Humanities disciplines. Discourse is here intended as an effective and reproducing practice that structures and informs not only academic subjects, but both our notions of reality and identity. Participants are encouraged to think about discourse as a practice which is tied up with notions of power, knowledge and truth.
The workshop provides an overview of various interdisciplinary approaches to Discourse Analysis and practical examples of how it is used for research purposes; this includes ample hands-on practice on Discourse Analysis.
