Method: Critical Discourse Analysis

I have been working with undergraduates, exploring Critical Discourse Analysis as a method to critique government policy. They have found it a mindset change from the more traditional structure of research, but they enjoyed the detective work of finding out who wrote the policy, who was the audience and who were the hidden voices. We used Huckin’s Framework for Critical Discourse Analysis (Grbich, 2013), which splits the evaluation into two parts, Identifying and Interpretation. It maybe something you want to explore in your research. You can see CDA in action in article on my website at: http://www.richardnelsononline.co.uk/blog/archives/767
