„Methodenworkshop Diskursanalyse“ with Ruth Wodak


Call for Papers for the workshop with Ruth Wodak

The workshop offers three PhD students the opportunity to discuss their research projects, which use the method of discourse analysis, with Mrs Wodak. Contentwise, the foundation for the workshop is laid by project descriptions handed in prior to the workshop. Mrs Wodak will engage with every project and discuss methodological questions and questions of theory management with the plenum. Of course, PhD students without papers are equally welcome to attend and discuss. If you would like to attend the workshop with Ruth Wodak, please register at gsgg@uni-goettingen.de.
