DiscourseNet Winter School, 16-19 January 2024, Valencia

“Discourse studies and power from the margins”

The 8th DiscourseNet Winter School invites students and researchers to an interdisciplinary exchange at University of Valencia, Spain, from Tuesday 16 until Friday 19 January 2024.

In its 8th edition, the Winter School takes a look at the structuring conditions of doing research within global power relations. It aims to deepen its participants’ understanding of contemporary societies and their social phenomena at local and global levels. A special emphasis will be placed on a ‘Southern’ perspective with the objective of decolonising (in)visibilities in discourse studies.

The DiscourseNet Winter School brings together MA as well as PhD students across disciplines (social sciences, linguistics, cultural studies, humanities, etc.). Advanced BA students with their own research project are also welcome. 

Requests for participation can be placed at dns8@discourseanalysis.net until 15 December 23.
