Working with theory in social research

POLITICS, HEGEMONY, FANTASY: POSTSTRUCTURALIST DISCOURSE ANALYSIS VIA LACLAU, MOUFFE AND LACAN

22 March 2017

What gives shape to “society” and its institutions as we know them? And why do some arguments for social change gather momentum while others fall on deaf ears? In this seminar, Dr Remy Low will lead particpants throught an exploration of poststructuralist discourse analysis (aka “discourse theory”) as developed by Ernesto Laclau, Chantal Mouffe, and Jacques Lacan. He will also demonstarte how to put discourse theory to use by applying it to two contemporary examples: the persistence of so-called “neoliberal” policies, and Donald Trump’s movement to “Make America Great Again”.
