DiscourseNet #DN20: Exploring Fuzzy Boundaries in Discourse Studies

The aim of the 20th DiscourseNet conference (17 – 19 May 2018 – Budapest, Hungary) is to focus on the multifarious aspects of fuzzy boundaries in the field of discourse studies. The field of discourse studies itself is marked by complex boundary work and a certain degree of fuzziness regarding the use of linguistic categories. Moreover, fuzziness and boundary work are also inherent dimensions of cognition and subjectivity, it can therefore be considered a fundamental feature of the discursive construction of reality. This conference explores the different ways in which fuzziness operates in empirically observable discourse. Get more information
