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.
