Post-structuralism in Discourse Analysis

This course offers an immersive exploration of Post-structuralism in Discourse Analysis, enhanced by an AI-driven interactive learning environment. It delves into the post-structuralist critique of conventional understandings of meaning, power, and reality, exploring the contributions of seminal theorists such as Derrida, Foucault, Kristeva, Barthes, Baudrillard, and Lacan. By highlighting the instability of meaning and the role of power in discourse, the course enriches our understanding of how language shapes social constructs and identity. Methodologies within post-structuralism, such as textual analysis and the critique of power relations, are applied across various fields including literary studies, media studies, and social sciences, offering new perspectives on traditional interpretations and encouraging a deeper understanding of the complex interplay of language, power, and identity. The course also addresses critiques of post-structuralism, exploring the balance between its philosophical insights and empirical demands, and introduces contemporary theories like New Materialisms and Intersectionality that further expand the scope of discourse analysis. Through interactive articles and the use of a Discourse Analyzer AI assistant, students are encouraged to actively engage with the content, select text segments, and interact directly with the material, facilitating a dynamic and personalized learning experience.
