What is DiscourseNet?
DiscourseNet welcomes all discourse researchers. We understand Discourse Studies as a field studying social practices of meaning production in the entanglements of verbal and/or non-verbal communication. Discourse researchers mobilize theories and methods to account for objects at the intersection of language, power and society.
DiscourseNet has existed since 2008. Members of DiscourseNet meet in regular congresses, conferences and summer schools. Coordinated by a Board, DiscourseNet helps create and pursue research activities across disciplines, countries and languages. It runs various publication outlets and it has created this web platform.
Please always make sure you are a registered user of this portal and that you keep your account up-to-date (see the login button at top right).
DiscourseNet was constituted as an association at the General Assembly on 14/09/2019 in Paris. The General Assembly has adopted the DiscourseNet founding documents (pdf) with two amendments and elected the representatives for the next two years. DiscourseNet is coordinated by the DiscourseNet Board. DiscourseNet e.V. was registered in Amtsgericht Fürth, Germany (VR 200493) on 29/11/2019.
