You may want to tell your student that the following two works, though not
CDA (I think ;-) ), address in passing issues of resistance, namely,

Alvarez-Cáccamo, Celso. 1996. "Building alliances in political discourse:

XXX.3/4. Special Issue on Interactional Sociolinguistics, ed. by Helga
Both are available at:
