In this course we examine how language (spoken, written, or computer mediated) and other multimodal resources (such as gestures, gaze, body movements) are:
1) structured (rather than random),
2) used to accomplish actions in the world (e.g. order a coffee,
convince an employer to invite us for a job interview, inform passengers of a delay),
3) negotiate identities (getting recognized as a 'professional', 'father' or 'reasonable person') and
4) construct ideologies (systems of ideas or beliefs such as in neoliberalism, free trade, gender role ideology).

Various classic approaches as well as recent applications will be covered during this 6-week class. Besides a theoretical basis in discourse approaches, you will get hands-on experience in applying discourse analytic methods on real data. You will get access to specific software to transcribe and analyze discourse and learn how to gather data and about the ethical implications of doing so.

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
