Book Description

The Routledge Handbook of Discourse Analysis covers the major approaches to Discourse Analysis from Critical Discourse Analysis to Multimodal Discourse Analysis and their applications in key educational and institutional settings. The handbook is divided into eight sections: Approaches to Discourse Analysis, Gender, Race and Sexualities, Narrativity and Discourse, Genre and Register, Spoken Discourse, Social Media and Online Discourse, Educational Applications, and Institutional Applications.

The chapters are written by a wide range of contributors from around the world, each a leading researcher in their respective field. With a focus on the application of Discourse Analysis to real-life problems, the contributors introduce the reader to a topic, and analyse authentic data. This fully revised second edition includes new sections on And on Gender, Race and Sexualities, Narrativity and Discourse, Genre and Register, Spoken Discourse, Social Media and Online Discourse and nine new chapters on topics such as digital communication and public policy and political discourse.

This volume is vital reading for all students and researchers of discourse analysis in linguistics, applied linguistics, communication and cultural studies, social psychology and anthropology.

    Reviews

    A very readable, extensive and up-to-date resource for researchers and students of discourse analysis.

    Paul Baker, Lancaster University, UK

    This edition contains an excellent overview of discourse analysis, defined in a very wide sense. It really gives a newcomer to the discipline a sense of the breadth and variety of the field. The chapters offer students and researchers interested in the analysis of discourse excellent, well-illustrated introductions to the most important theoretical and methodological approaches, written by some of the key figures in the field.
