Discourse Theory and Practice by Margaret Wetherell

Book Description

'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).

Emotion is an important topic in social science. This work - from a leading voice in the field - not only accessibly outlines the research from different fields, but is the first to pull it together to propose an agenda setting proposal for a definitive approach.

Identity in the 21st Century by Margaret Wetherell Identity in the 21st Century, Hardback (November 2009)

Bringing together leading scholars to investigate trends in contemporary social life, this book examines the current patterning of identities based on class and community, gender and generation, 'race', faith and ethnicity, and derived from popular culture, exploring debates about social change, individualization and the re-making of social class.

Theorizing Identities and Social Action by Margaret Wetherell Theorizing Identities and Social Action, Hardback (October 2009)

This collection brings together leading scholars to explore the 'doing' and 'making' of identities. Drawing on the highly innovative ESRC Identities and Social Action Programme, the chapters take core social actions -- such as performing, excluding, mixing, bonding -- and demonstrate how social practices and identities unfold together.

Identity, Ethnic Diversity and Community Cohesion by Margaret Wetherell Identity, Ethnic Diversity and Community Cohesion, Paperback (June 2007)

What is meant by community? Is there a balance between equality, integration and diversity? Does the idea of identity undermine community cohesion? This book considers these questions and explores the concept of identity and how its different meanings and interpretations impact upon community policy.
