Discourse Studies is a field which studies meaning- and sense-making practices in their political, social and historical contexts. The DiscourseNet Winter School brings together advanced BA and MA as well as PhD students who want to pursue research in Discourse Studies and to discuss the methodological and theoretical challenges of their thesis projects (or first ideas). Its aim is to bring young and confirmed discourse researchers together and to address practical challenges in discourse research. The event will privilege collaborative exchange and hands-on research experience in a rather informal workshop setting. During the DiscourseNet Winter School, the students will not read their papers but elaborate on specific points, practical problems and methodological challenges of their projects. Introductory lectures will be given by Johannes Angermuller (Warwick), Benno Herzog (Valencia) and Luisa Martín Rojo (Madrid). Participants can come from linguistics, sociology, political sciences, literary and cultural studies, media and communication, education, geography and related areas in the social sciences and humanities.
