The thematics of this summer school is prompted by the recent emergence on the
global stage of a set of interlocking global crises - including climate,
energy, food, water, finance - which demands a renewed interdisciplinary
effort to understand how to mediate the future, the past and the present in
ways that attend to equity, justice and rights. Discourse is understood as
encompassing an interdisciplinary perspective on text, talk, genre, narrative,
archive, document, image and rhetoric in all their modal, social and cultural
forms-not only in terms of representation but more importantly in relation to
action and practice. Practice, practices, practical reasoning and practical
action are increasingly key elements of many recent approaches to discourse
(e.g. microethnography, mediated discourse analysis and nexus analysis), but a
dialogue between these approaches and the variants of practice theory that are
being used in sophisticated ways in fields such as transition studies,
anthropology, visual studies, etc. is urgently needed and holds much

With the strong interdisciplinary focus of this summer school, we will be
working with the following clusters:

Practice/Practical Reasoning/Practical Action 
Transition/Intervention/Critique/Social Justice 

Our summer school will interest students and scholars who work in the diverse
fields of discourse studies, communication studies, practice studies,
development studies, globalisation studies, media studies, political science,
sociology, history, anthropology, transition studies, social movement studies,
transition studies, communication activism, participatory communication,
critical journalism studies, action research, and human-centred communication
and informatics.
