DeXus is the name for the Discourse Nexus summer school, which was held
very successfully for the first time in 2003 at the Centre for Discourse
Studies, Aalborg University. DeXus focuses on innovative research in
discourse studies and its application to a variety of settings and data
sets. Participants will engage in a mix of lectures, workshops, group
work, individual consultations and discussion sessions. The goal of DeXus
is to create a space in which attendees can discuss the latest moves in
discourse studies, apply approaches in discourse studies to 'real world'
problems, learn hands-on in a positive environment and find new relays
between academic work and social change. 

Keynote lectures will focus on the following themes:
 - Revisiting Ideology, Hegemony and Identity in Discourse: Evidence 
     from Institutional Discourse  
 - Rethinking Analytical Practice: Conceptual, Methodological, and 
     Political Implications
 - Discourse Analysis: Is It Useful; Is It Enough? 
     Six Areas of Development in Contemporary Discourse Analysis

Workshops will be held on the following topics: 
 - Discourse, Gender and Linguistic Repertoires: An African Viewpoint
 - CDA in Practice: Paradoxical Effects of the Iraq war on 
     European Identity
 - The Discourses of Food in the World System

More lectures and workshops to be announced soon. Check the website.

The summer school is international and open to all researchers, PhD and
graduate students.
