DiscourseNet Reading Group


We e-meet every month for 90 minutes on Zoom to discuss a pre-selected reading. If you are interested in joining in, just sign up to this group and you will receive further information on dates and readings, as well as the meeting invite. 

The next meeting/reading will be announced shortly. 

We mainly use some form of English in this group. 

If you have some questions, if you would like to suggest a reading for the next months, please send Jaspal a message at singhjn@hku.hk.

If you haven't done so already, please consider becoming a member of the DisocurseNet Association to support our various activities. More information can be found here: https://discourseanalysis.net/DN/members

See you soon! 

Jens, Luciana, Kaushalya, Jan and Jaspal
