Course background and purpose
The course aims to discuss two methods in the field of discourse studies: Discourse-theoretical analysis (DTA) and Discursive-material analysis (DMA). Both are grounded in so-called high theory, with discourse theory as its main starting point, but with elements of actor network theory and new materialism. This course will start with an introduction to these theoretical models, but will then move on to their analytical deployment in communication and media studies research.
Special attention will be spent on the creation of a theory-grounded analytical model to guide the research. Apart from attending lectures, participants will be expected to participate in both theoretical and research-driven workshops.

Learning outcomes
On completion of this course successful students will be able to:
• have a deeper understanding of the field of discourse studies, and in particular of its discourse-theoretical component
• have a deeper understanding of the theoretical relationship between the discursive and the material -know how to translate discourse-theoretical models into analytical practice, through the use of the notion of the sensitizing concept (applied to discourse theory, and to discourse-theoretical rereading of other theories) -be able to set up an analytical model for a discourse-theoretical analysis and a discursive-material analysis

Discourse Studies and Method: Using Discourse-Theoretical Analysis and Discursive-Material Analysis
The course will be organised on 10 February - 14 February 2020.

Teaching and evaluation
The one-week course will be organised in 10 teaching slots, combining lectures and workshops. These workshops are partially theoretical (presenting an article or chapter), and partially research-driven (presenting an analytical model).
A certificate (with a grade “Pass”) is given after 1) attendance of minimally 8 meetings, 2) a working group theoretical presentation, 3) an individual case study presentation.
