Seminario Avanzado de Estudios del Discurso - SAED (Advanced Seminar of Discourse Studies)

The Centre organises an advanced, bi-weekly seminar for PhD students from Barcelona's three major public universities (UPF, UB, and UAM) and for visiting scholars and PhD students who are specialised in any field of Discourse Studies or who use Discourse analytical methods in their thesis - especially from a critical perspective.


The sessions, led by Dr. Teun van Dijk, consist of an introduction into a major field or method of Discourse Studies, followed by a presentation of one SAED member's PhD Project each session. All SAED members are expected to present their research and share their specialised knowledge.
