Discourse Theory and Practice free pdf 'A highly effective introduction to the range of approaches found in discourse analysis! a lively and intellectually stimulating Reader' - David Silverman, Goldsmith College, University of London. "Discourse Theory and Practice" is much more than a collection of key classic articles and papers in the field of discourse analysis. The aim of the book is to introduce students to the major figures in the field, and to some of their writings which, combined with the interspersed editorial commentaries, should allow students to understand the key epistemological and methodological issues of discourse theory and practice. The Reader is organized into four coherent parts, namely: Foundations and Building Blocks- Social Interaction- Minds, Selves and Sense-Making- and Culture and Social Relations. Key readings include works by Stuart Hall, Jonathan Potter, David Silverman, Erving Goffman, Teun van Dijk, Derek Edwards and Michael Billig.Chapters introduce the student to each individual and their reading, contextualizing each in terms of their contribution to the field, theoretical standpoint and individual method of doing discourse analysis. The many didactic elements of the book make it ideal as an introduction to the study of discourse for all students of psychology, sociology, linguistics or cultural studies. This book is a course reader for The Open University course Discourse Analysis (D843).
