Advanced Seminar of Discourse Studies (SAED)

SAED (Seminario Avanzado de Estudios del Discurso) is an advanced, bi-weekly seminar for PhD students who are specialized in any field of Discourse Studies or who use discourse analytical methods in their thesis - especially from a critical perspective.


The sessions, led by Prof. 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 specialized knowledge. The seminar is offered free of charge to all accepted applicants. 

This year (2023) we will be opening two SAED groups. One group will be open to students located in Barcelona, with all sessions held in-person at the Centre of Discourse Studies (SAED Barcelona). The other group will be open to students around the globe, with all sessions held online (SAED Global).


The programed sessions for SAED 2023 (Barcelona and Global editions) are listed below.
