Discourse Workshop for PhD Students in the SPP 1689

Thursday, 4th and Friday, 5th of December 2014 in Heidelberg 

The workshop for PhD students of the SPP discussed various approaches to discourses of CE. The presentations of three different discourse concepts – from linguistics, political science, and philosophy – made clear that “discourse” is a complex term of social science and humanities. In hands-on-sessions the participants practiced methods and tools of discourse analyses, namely qualitative coding and argument mapping. Those very different approaches enabled the participants to understand the variety of aspects under which the CE discourse can be analyzed.
