Communication and Discourse Theory

Collected Works of the Brussels Discourse Theory Group

This volume gathers the work of the Brussels Discourse Theory Group, a group of critical media and communication scholars that deploy discourse theory as theoretical backbone and analytical research perspective. Drawing on a variety of case studies, ranging from the politics of reality TV to the representation of populism, Communication and Discourse Theory highlights both the radical contingent nature and the hegemonic workings of media and communication practices. The book shows the value and applicability of discourse-theoretical analysis (DTA) within the field of media and communication studies.

"This work significantly contributes to research intersections on discourse and communication. . . . These 13 case studies employ multiple layers of DT in complex communication practices. Core concepts generated from DT such as articulation, nodal points, subject position/identity, and hegemony establish a methodological toolbox for DTA that can enrich the research strategy for discourse analysis with a unique advantage toward political discourse and ideological discourse media and communication research."
