What is DiscourseNet?
DiscourseNet is a community of researchers in Discourse Studies, broadly understood as a field studying social practices of meaning production in the entanglements of verbal and/or non-verbal communication. Discourse researchers mobilize theories and methods to account for objects at the intersection of language, power and society.
DiscourseNet has existed since 2008. Members of DiscourseNet meet in regular congresses, conferences and summer schools. Coordinated by a Board, DiscourseNet helps create and pursue research activities across disciplines, countries and languages. It runs various publication outlets and it has created this web platform.
DiscourseNet has been a network of discourse analysts and is becoming an association. Everybody was invited to participate in the DiscourseNet Association survey, the results of which will be presented at the General Assembly on 14/09/19 in Paris. You will find the communications sent around through this portal and the DiscourseNet founding documents below (pdf). The General Assembly will vote on the final version of these documents. If they are accepted, we will proceed to elect the legal representatives of the new association for the next two years. A candidate team was announced on 07/09/2019 on this portal.
