Discourse in late modernity : rethinking critical discourse analysis by Lilie Chouliaraki( )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 1,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Discourse in Late Modernity sets out to show that critical discourse analysis is strongly positioned to address empirical research and theory-building across the social sciences, particularly research and theory on the semiotic/linguistic aspects of the social world. It situates critical discourse analysis as a form of critical social research in relation to diverse theories from the philosophy of science to social theory and from political science to sociology and linguistics."--Jacket
Language and power by Norman Fairclough( Book )

90 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 1,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language and Power is about how language works to maintain and change power relations in contemporary society, and how understanding these processes can enable people to resist and change them. Substantial changes in social life have taken place in the decade since the original publication, which have changed the nature of unequal power relations, and therefore the agenda for the critical study of language. In this second edition, Norman Fairclough brings the discussion completely up-to-date with the inclusion of a new chapter covering the 'globalisation' of power relations and the development of the internet in relation to language and power

27 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book about the politics of New Labour that focuses on language. Norman Fairclough gets behind the rhetoric to uncover the real meaning. He examines a wide range of political speeches and texts, from Tony Blair's speech following the death of Diana to the 1997 Labour Party Manifesto and Bill Clinton's book Between Hope and History." "New Labour, New Language? blows open the whole debate on the nature of the political discourse of New Labour and the 'Third Way'. Written in a clear, non-technical style and including a glossary, New Labour, New Language? will appeal to anyone interested in language or politics."--Jacket
Critical discourse analysis : the critical study of language by Norman Fairclough( Book )

67 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together work on critical discourse analysis written by Norman Fairclough between 1983 and 1992, which represents important contributions to the development of this increasingly popular area of study." "The contents of the book are grouped in four sections. The first section examines the development of an analytical framework for researching language in relation to power and ideology. The second deals with the theme of discourse and contemporary social and cultural change, and the use of a critical discourse analysis framework in the study of change. Chapters in the third section mainly address discourse analysis based outside language studies, arguing for the use of textual analysis in discourse analysis as a method of social research. The final section is concerned with critical language awareness, educational applications of critical discourse analysis within language programmes in schools and educational institutions." "Critical Discourse Analysis will be of value to researchers in the subject as well as being essential reading for advanced undergraduate and MA students of Linguistics on courses in discourse analysis and the sociology of language."--Jacket

Norman Fairclough adopts the approach of combining critical discourse analysis with cultural political economy to develop a new theory of the relationship between discourse and other dimensions of globalization. Using examples from a variety of countries such as the USA, Britain, Romania, Hungary and Thailand, Language and Globalization shows how the analysis of texts can be coherently integrated within political economic analysis.

Media discourse by Norman Fairclough( Book )

38 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of media language is increasingly important both for media studies and for discourse analysis and sociolinguistics. Norman Fairclough applies to media language his 'critical discourse analysis' framework which he developed in 'Language and Power' and 'Discourse and Social Life'. Drawing on examples from TV, radio and the press, he focuses on changing practices of media discourse in relation to wider processes of social and cultural change. In particular he explores the tensions between public and private in the media and the tensions between information and entertainment."--Provided by publisher

Political discourse analysis by Norman Fairclough( Book )

26 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this accessible new textbook, Isabela and Norman Fairclough present their innovative approach to analysing political discourse. Political Discourse Analysis integrates analysis of arguments into critical discourse analysis and political discourse analysis. The book is grounded in a view of politics in which deliberation, decision and action are crucial concepts: politics is about arriving cooperatively at decisions about what to do in the context of disagreement, conflict of interests and values, power inequalities, uncertainty and risk. The first half of the book introduces the authors' new approach to the analysis and evaluation of practical arguments, while the second half explores how it can be applied by looking at examples such as government reports, parliamentary debates, political speeches and online discussion forums on political issues. Through the analysis of current events, including a particular focus on the economic crisis and political responses to it, the authors provide a systematic and rigorous analytical framework that can be adopted and used for students' own research. This exciting new text, co-written by bestselling author Norman Fairclough, is essential reading for researchers, upper undergraduate and postgraduate students of discourse analysis, within English language, linguistics, communication studies, politics and other social sciences
Education and the knowledge based economy in Europe by Bob Jessop( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and Italian and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the recent impact of the 'knowledge-based economy' as an economic 'imaginary' and as a set of real economic developments on education, and especially higher education in Europe, including educational strategies and policies such as those of the Bologna process on a European scale. The contributors come from various disciplinary backgrounds (education, history, linguistics, sociology) but share a commitment to trans-disciplinary research and a view that changes in educational policy and practice can productively be researched with a focus on discourse. The papers in this collection apply a range of approaches to discourse analysis, as well as narrative policy analysis, and several contributors use a cultural political economy perspective which incorporates a version of critical discourse analysis. The book will be of interest to researchers, post-graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in several subject areas, including education, discourse studies and political economy
