COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course is aimed at students and researchers in the Social Sciences and Humanities who want to apply CDA within their research. The course offers a general overview of the development of CDA, its main theories and fields of research, but focuses mainly on methodology, that is, on how to do discourse analysis from a critical perspective, which implies taking into account social, cognitive and historical aspects when doing discursive analysis.


The course consists of 20 hours of class. You may register for the entire course or by thematic blocks. Classes will be online.


The course will be taught by Dr. César Rojo and includes a final live session with a lecture given by Teun van Dijk
