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 (2024) we will only be offering the option to participate in SAED in-person at the Centre of Discourse Studies.
