Workshop „Fostering interdisciplinary communication – discussing approaches to discourse“

Donnerstag, 30. Juni 2016

On June 30th 2016 (Thursday), the University of Bremen hosts an international and interdisciplinary workshop on working with discourse analysis. The workshop shall bring together doctoral and postdoctoral researchers from the fields of linguistics, history, and cultural and social sciences, who will share their experiences and discuss advantages and disadvantages of applying the method within and across their respective disciplines. Participants will have the unique opportunity to express their concerns, work on possible solutions, learn from each other’s practice, and develop a positive approach to communication across fields in humanities and social sciences, with the overarching goal of establishing new and fostering already existing networks, links and connections. The workshop format of the meeting supports intensive collaborative work, while the small size of the group (max. 10 participants) and informal atmosphere guarantee an honest and open discussion. The topics to be covered during this full-day event can be divided into the following categories:

  1. Discourse analysis in my field – i.e., Has my work in DA affected my understanding of my field and its subject matter? What other methods are available in my field and (how) are they compatible with DA?
  2. Discourse analysis across fields – i.e., Has my interest in DA facilitated my interaction with other disciplines, and in what ways? Has my understanding of/approach to DA improved because of interaction with other disciplines?
  3. Discourse analysis and my career – i.e., How can the choice to use DA affect my career prospects in my field?
  4. Other topics may include ethical considerations, problems concerning publishing, grant proposal writing, the applicability of DA projects, etc.

The workshop will have the form of a free, informal group discussion. Accepted participants will be expected to prepare a 5-minute presentation about their projects involving discourse analysis, as well as think about possible answers to a number of questions incl. the examples above. The full list of questions will be distributed before the workshop and all participants will have the opportunity to suggest new or different questions, topics and problems to be discussed.
