Monday 30 June - Friday 5 July 2008
The summer school is an interdisciplinary course for PhD students, post-docs and academics at an early stage in their career,

The course will introduce two approaches to CDA (those of Fairclough and Wodak) and a version of Cultural Political Economy which incorporates CDA (Jessop and Sum), with examples of their application. It will also offer participants feedback and guidance on their own research.
An indicative list of themes likely to be addressed: changes in governance, politics and the state, political-economic transformations, knowledge-based economy and knowledge society, competitiveness, social change associated with the European Union, identity politics (inclusion/exclusion) and migration.
