The module aims at providing students with Critical Discourse Analysis tools and to introduce them to Critical stylistics.
Programme: The module concentrates on the relation between text, discourse, intertextuality and interdiscursiveness by introducing students to Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and critical stylistics, with a special focus on ‘discourse representation’, ‘presupposition’, ‘negation’, ‘metadiscourse’ and ‘irony’, and, more generally, on ideological construction in various discursive and textual typologies.
