Doing Discourse Research
An Introduction for Social Scientists
- Reiner Keller - University of Augsburg, Germany
Discourse Analysis | Social Research Methods | Sociological Research Methods
not suitable for course - too advanced
A convincing hands-on, yet theoretically sophisticated textbook.
Extremely useful introduction to discourse analysis. Especially the Critical Discourse Analysis I consider to be a very fruitful methodical approach - also beyond Social Sciences, i.e. in Humanities.
This is a useful introduction to research for beginners. It will be one among other texts which I would recommend to students in the early stages of their training.
Helpful to have basic understanding of DA.
Although students usually prefer step by step kind of guidelines, this book will outcut the way
This text introduces discourse research in a very succinct and accessible manner. It is highly recommended for those new to doing discourse analysis as well as to more advanced researchers, especially those interested in the materialities of discourse.
An interesting work because it deals with the main theoretical and analytical approaches to discourse with a clear structure and with good recommendations to start with research.
This book provides students with an excellent insight into the broad possibilities of investigation, the methods and the related research questions of discourse studies! I will highly recommend it to my students working on research papers on questions about the current state of art of language politics in the European Union and to students in other courses too.
'Discourse' and other forms of 'narrative' are very prominent at the moment, students and tutors need to understand these approaches and how to introduce levels of rigour into their research
Useful for the Masters students as well as PhD and Professional Doctoral candidates
