Outline
The recent interest in the ‘useful methodological synergy’ (Baker et al. 2008) of corpus-based methods and qualitative analysis within a critical discourse studies framework has given rise to numerous projects and publications. While there is ongoing debate about the development of these methods and their practical application in various research contexts, as yet there has not been much discussion of the moral and ethical issues involved in this kind of research. Specifically, there is work to do in integrating the traditionally data-driven approach of corpus linguistics and the (social) problem-oriented approach of critical discourse studies. This dichotomy comes into sharp focus when the combined approaches are applied to contentious issues (e.g. antisemitism, immigration, climate change, etc.).

The ultimate outcome of the symposium should be a better understanding of how the different research traditions that have given rise to corpus-assisted discourse studies and related approaches can be integrated, and a strengthening of the ethical underpinnings in this field.
