The Centre of Discourse Studies collaborates with institutional and independent research and activist groups concerned with the use of discourse in society. Here we provide a brief description and links to these groups. The Centre is open to expanding our affiliation with other groups in order to promote research and action in Discourse Studies worldwide. Interested groups can visit our Contact Page or send a message directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
