Discourse Analysis Courses

Welcome to the collaboration area for creating a NEW approach to teaching discourse analysis for interpreters. This approach seeks to offer a holistic and systematic perspective of discourse as the foundation of meaning-centered interpreting (including both translation and interpreting).

The preliminary structure is that of 2 sequential semester-length courses ( approximately 15 weeks each, Discourse Analysis 1 and Discourse Analysis 2. The courses apply discourse mapping to the ongoing study of the emergence of meaning through interaction, and adhere to a learning-centered process of discovery, application, and assessment.
