Description

Critical Discourse in the Academy: Foucault and Lacan

Manchester Institute of Education are holding a series of seminars to explore theoretical and methodological approaches to discourse analysis.

Discourse analysis is a central and important qualitative method with certain approaches providing a certain way of speaking and looking a knowledge that is attuned to power structures in society. We would like to expand our engagement with Discourse Analysis and incorporate other approaches such as psychoanalytic and feminist perspectives as critical resources to Discourse Analysis. We hope to build on current knowledge through inviting external scholars and contemporary theorists in an effort to develop people’s knowledge of theoretical approaches.

The seminars will be focused on engagement and discussion between established researchers/academics and research students. The initial seminars will draw on theoretical approaches and research to make connections between Foucauldian and Lacanian psychoanalytical approaches to discourse analysis.

We are delighted to invite to the first seminar of the series:

Professor Ian Parker - University of Leicester:
'What is the difference between Lacan and Foucault?'


Owen Demsey - University of Manchester:
The necropolitics of "Too Much Medicine" in capitalism: mapping narrative with Lacan's structures of discourse.
