Discourses of Globalisation - LNGS7276

Year - 2018

This unit considers the discourse of globalisation from the perspective of critical discourse analysis (CDA) as informed by functional linguistics and multimodal discourse analysis. Both discourses about globalisation and discourses enacting globalisation will be considered in relation to power and ideology, including case studies of virtual communities, language policy, discourses of war and terrorism, globalisation and the media, climate change, popular music, diplomacy, tourism and international business communication. Resistant discourse strategies promoting local identity will also be reviewed.
