Research interests

    Against a background in linguistics and sociology, my research interests are centered around the discursive construction of social order. My methodological focus is on the complex organization of language in use, from the micro-level of its polyphonic organization to the macro-level of large collections of written text. While addressing questions of power, knowledge and social change, I have pursued research on academic as well as political discourses. With a background in French linguistic discourse analysis and the qualitative traditions in the German and North American social sciences, I'm the PI of the ERC DISCONEX project (Discursive Construction of Academic Excellence) and the coordinator of DiscourseNet, an international and interdisciplinary network of discourse researchers at the crossroads of language & society (http://www.discourseanalysis.net, where you can register and get the latest news in discourse analysis).
