Inhalt: Critical discourse analysis (CDA) is a contemporary approach to the study of language and discourses in social institutions. Drawing on poststructuralist discourse theory and critical linguistics, it focuses on how social relations, identity, knowledge and power are constructed through written and spoken texts in communities, schools and classrooms. The goal of this seminar is to introduce the tools, key terms assumptions and methodology used in CDA, and to apply it to diverse contexts (media discourse, educational discourse and other kinds of institutional discourse).
