Dates: 17-Jan-2017 - 19-Jan-2017
Location: Valencia, Spain

Focus: Within the multitude of approaches in the field of discourse studies, the question of how ideology, power and authority operate in and through discourse(s) takes a special place. Whether it is the study of how power is (re)produced in micro-practices and interactions, the analysis of inequality and dominance in macro-structures, or the investigation of the functioning of ideology in texts, spoken communication, gestures or pictures - these topics have been an integral part of many research traditions on the intersection of language and society.
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate

The DiscourseNet Winter School brings together advanced BA and MA as well as
PhD students who want to pursue research on questions revolving around
Discourse, Ideology and Political Economy and to discuss the methodological
and theoretical challenges of their thesis projects or first ideas. Its aim is
to bring young and established discourse researchers together to address
practical challenges in discourse research. The event will provide a
collaborative exchange and hands-on research experience in a rather informal
workshop setting. Introductory workshops on the three main fields will be
given by more experienced scholars (Discourse: Johannes Angermuller, Ideology:
Benno Herzog and Johannes Beetz, Political Economy: Jens Maesse and Amelie

Our keynote speaker Prof Bob Jessop from Lancaster University will provide a
lecture on ‘Antonio Gramsci as a Cultural Political Economist’.

Participants from the disciplines and fields of linguistics, sociology,
political sciences, literary and cultural studies, media and communication,
education, geography and related areas in the social sciences and humanities
are all invited. 

The Winter School is a Giessen-Warwick-Paris-Valencia event, organised by
members of the DIPE (Discourse, Ideology, and Political Economy) research
group within DiscourseNet. DiscourseNet is an interdisciplinary and
international network of discourse researchers existing since 2007. The Winter
School is supported by the University of Giessen, the University of Valencia,
and the ERC-funded DISCONEX project at the University of Warwick and the EHESS

Registration Instructions:
Applicants are expected to send in proposals which include a short letter of
motivation, an abstract with one’s project (no more than one page) as well as
an academic CV. The abstract will consist of a title and a description of the
proposed research project which can deal with academic, educational,
intellectual or other discourses and/or methodological questions in discourse
research. Proposals should be sent in by the 20 September 2016. In case of
acceptance, each participant will be asked to send in a 10-page version of the
research project by 15 December 2015. These longer texts should delineate the
research object, lay out the research questions, situate the project in the
field, and reflect on the preferred methods. These versions will be circulated
among the participants prior to the event and will be used by the
commentators. Each participant will get two comments on their paper by two
experts. During the Winter School, the students will not present their entire
papers but elaborate on specific points, practical problems and methodological
challenges of their projects. If they wish, the participants can stay the
weekend after and join in the social activities with the organisers in the
Valencia region.
