5th ESTIDIA Conference - Hybrid Dialogues: Transcending Binary Thinking and Moving Away from Societal Polarizations

The 5th ESTIDIA conference, to be held on 19-21 September 2019, is organised by ESTIDIA together with the I-LanD Interuniversity Research Centre and hosted by the University of Naples ‘L’Orientale’. The theme of the conference was prompted by the risks and challenges posed by the increasing use of virulent polemics both on- and off-line that are constantly shifting the boundaries between traditionally dichotomous forms of communication (e.g., public/private, face-to-face/virtual, formal/informal, polite/impolite) and types of mindsets (e.g., trust/dis

This perspective on discourses and their analysis draws on Foucault, Berger and Luckmann and the interpretative paradigm of sociology including symbolic interactionism and "communicative constructivism". In comparison to the Foucauldian tradition, SKAD focuses more on social actors and societal arenas of discursive disputes.

The Discursive Construction of Reality IV - Interdisciplinary perspectives on a sociology of knowledge approach to discourse research

Over the last decade, the research programme outlined by the sociology of knowledge approach to discourse (SKAD) has spread to many disciplines in social science. A common interest in discourse research has resulted in a widely distributed community that prevalently, but not exclusively, uses qualitative research designs to examine forms of 'discursive construction of reality'.

Violence in the Digital Age

Submitted by Jan Krasni on Sat, 09/15/2018 - 21:03

The digital age transformed the traditional forms of violence but also caused new ones. The hopes to overcome the negative sides of the human community in the age of Internet and social networks have come true only to a certain degree.

Theme

The legitimacy of "Europe" and "the West" as identifiable territorial and imagined entities is in crisis. The awareness has grown of a world becoming more polycentric. At the same time, the field of Discourse Studies is growing at a dazzling rate across the globe. Discourse Studies is known for theoretical  orientations and methodological tools that account for meaning production as a social practice mobilizing languages, media and technologies.

The GGS Annual Conference 2018 DiscourseNet22: Discourse, Power, Subjectivation

Discourse Studies cover a growing field of interdisciplinary research on meaning making practices, communicative activities and symbolic representations. Cultural studies, linguistics, media analysis, geography, and history, among others, highlight the role of texts, pictures and language in the constitution of truth and reality. Actor-oriented disciplines such as political science, sociology, pedagogy or economics and management studies are interested in the formation of subjectivities,
