Autumn School “The Sociology of Knowledge Approach to Discourse (SKAD)”

Only few places left in the workshop on the Sociology of Knowledge Approach to Discourse (SKAD)                                                                                                11.10.2018-13.10.2018                                                                                          University of Augsburg

The organizers invite novice as well as experienced academics from a wide range of disciplines, including but not limiting to sociology, ethnology, political science, linguistics, psychology and educational science, to explorethe potential of this approach to studying discourses in the context of their own projects and research.

SKAD redirects discourse research towards Foucaultian research interests about questions of social relationships of knowledge & knowing and politics of knowledge & knowing. Concerning itself with ‘ways of doing’, it uses elements of qualitative research design (like theoretical sampling, sequential analysis, analysis by contrasting cases, category building, discourse ethnography) and interpretative analytics.

The Augsburg workshop builds on the emerging interest in SKAD in international contexts and will be the starting event for the annually recurring series of SKAD workshops in English at the University of Augsburg. SKAD workshops address core issues of the concrete doing and practice of discourse research. It addresses colleagues from the Social Sciences and the Humanities who are interested in learning about SKAD and its particular profile within the field of discourse studies as well as in doing SKAD research/using SKAD methodologies in their own concrete work in the context of discourse research.
