While -discourse’ has long been an object of investigation in various disciplines, the contours of a new transdisciplinary field of research are now coming to the fore: Discourse Studies. Discourse Studies comprises numerous strands and approaches which deal with the social production of meaning at the intersection of language and society. While opening up critical perspectives on social problems in contemporary societies, research on discourse typically aims to account for meaningful phenomena in their social entanglements: discourse as knowledge and power, discourse as language in use, discourse as text in context, discourse as communicative practice.
