‘Discourse and the Political’


Warwick, Coventry, UK

A workshop organized by Johannes Angermuller and Sue Wharton
for the ‘Professional and Academic Discourse’ (PAD) group

at Centre for Applied Linguistics (CAL)
February 5, 2015, 1-5pm
Room A1.11, Social Sciences 1st floor

This workshop will focus on ‘discourse and the political’ and will address the question from both theoretical and/or methodological points of view. Starting from discussions on discourse in contemporary political theory, notably a keynote talk from Yannis Stavrakakis, the workshop will discuss the possible relevance of interdisciplinary exchange in Discourse Studies.

While discourse theories have been hotly debated in political science, we want to ask how discourse theories can be brought together with the methodological approaches in social research. We therefore include a discussion of some of the methods typically used in discourse-based studies of political issues.

Here’s our programme:

1pm – 1:30pm
Free buffet!
1:30pm – 2:30 pm
Yannis Stavrakakis
(Political science, Thessaloniki): ‘Hegemony, Post-hegemony and Discourse’
(30 minutes plus 30 minutes discussion)

3pm – 5pm
Round Table ‘Discourse and the political’
Moderator: Malcolm MacDonald
Johannes Angermuller (CAL)
Marianna Fotaki (WBS)
Nick Vaughan-Williams (PAIS)
Michael Saward (PAIS)
Sue Wharton (CAL)

The atmosphere will be rather informal and very interactive with lots of participation from the audience. We hope that everyone present will bring comments, questions and ideas about the ways in which discourse based work can contribute to the study of political issues.
