Discourse and Discourse Analysis
Date: Donderdag 21 maart
Time: 15.45 u – 17.30u
Speaker: Prof. dr. Dominique Maingueneau (Sorbonne)
Current discourse studies result from the convergence of various trends, coming from the whole space of Human and Social Sciences and from Philosophy. I shall reflect on the ambiguity of the very notion of discourse, which is at the same time an object and a way of approaching to this object. A distinction will be made between discourse studies > and discourse analysis, considered as one of the disciplines of discourse studies.
