The purpose of this workshop is to learn how to analyze texts, using some of the most common analytical categories of Discourse Analysis.
We will work with different types of texts (news, interviews, textbooks, sayings, songs, etc.) and
analyze textual levels such as syntax, semantics, pragmatics, rhetoric, etc. The analysis will focus mainly on the representation of social actors, and on the reproduction of different ideologies: racism, feminism, anti-racism, anti-capitalism, machismo, etc.
The workshop will be led by César Rojo, professor of the Centre of Discourse Studies. This workshop will also feature several presentations from current CDS visiting scholars: Daniele de Oliveira (Universidade Federal da Bahía), Liliana Vargas Monroy (Universidad Pontificia Universidad Javeriana de Bogotá), Mária Hodorovská (Comenius University in Bratislava), and Susana Martínez Guillen (University of New Mexico).
