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.

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.

Topic

Discourse can be addressed as a vehicle for power, a positioning practice which enlightens the role and the relationship among the speakers.
