Book Information


Title: Critical Discourse Analysis
Subtitle: Theory and Interdisciplinarity

Can discourse analysis techniques adequately deal with complex social
phenomena? What does 'interdisciplinarity' mean for theory building and the
practise of empirical research? This volume provides an innovative and
original debate on critical theory and discourse analysis, focussing on the
extent to which CDA can and should draw on the theory and methodology of a
range of discilplines within the social sciences. The contributors to the
volume are themselves international and multi-disciplinary, and the
collection is organised to address in turn the development of CDA over the
past two decades, the deabte on interdisciplinarity, impliactions for
discourse - analytical theory and applications.
