Dear colleagues and friends of the DiscourseNet community,
We are very thankful for the result of the election and for your confidence in us as the old —and now new— legal representatives of DiscourseNet.
Our aim is to be an association and a network which is useful for its members and that offers low threshold possibilities for all of you to get involved.
For us as an association with low hierarchies, it is important that the involvement of discourse researchers means more than treating you as clients and consumers of events and possibilities for publications. It means to help you to organize your own projects, events, publications and career plans.
We therefore very much hope that you will become (or stay) active in DiscourseNet, by organizing or promoting activities, by collaborating between members and under the umbrella of DiscourseNet or simply by sharing useful information through the website of DiscourseNet in order to reach out to the community of more than 8.000 registered discourse researchers.
Please contact us in case you have any idea or just want to chat with us about the possibilities of collaborating.
Benno Herzog (President), Aurora Fragonara (Secretary) and Michael Kranert (Treasurer)
