CFP: DiscourseNet Congress #2 (DNC 2) - Interdisciplinary Discourse Studies: Theory and Practice
13.09.2017-15.09.2017 - University of Warwick (Coventry, United Kingdom)
Deadline for submissions: 1st March 2017

CFP Discourse NetWhile ‘discourse’ has long been an object of investigation in many disciplines, the contours of a new field of transdisciplinary research are now coming to the fore: Discourse Studies. Known for theoretical orientations and methodological tools at the intersection of language and society, discourse research usually deals with social phenomena with a particular focus on the entanglements of power and language. While Discourse Studies has resulted from the exchange between numerous strands and approaches which deal with the social production of meaning, an increasing need for interdisciplinary exchange can now be observed. The Second International DiscourseNet Congress at Warwick aims to represent the many strands, schools, and perspectives in Discourse Studies, from the humanities to the social sciences, from strictly interpretive to quantifying methodologies, from discourse as a situated practice to discourse as socially distributed knowledge.

We invite contributions which deal with theoretical and/or methodological challenges in Discourse Studies, preferably with a focus on the nexus of language and power. We especially welcome papers which re-examine existing discourse theoretical frameworks, study social phenomena empirically and reflect on the critical potentials of Discourse Studies.

Papers are invited to focus on studying discourses including but not limited to:

- media discourse
- political discourse
- academic discourse
- educational discourse
- institutional discourse and talk
- economic discourse
- medical discourse
- discourses of law and justice
