LLED501 Analyzing Discourse and Talk: An Overview of Methods Sections

Credit will be granted for only one of LLED 501, LLED 575, and EPSE 586.

What is discourse? How is it related to social structures and realities? What methods can researchers use to describe and explain these relationships? What can the close study of discourse tell researchers about language and literacy practices? As a dynamic and interdisciplinary field emerging from anthropology, linguistics, sociology, philosophy, and psychology, discourse analysis offers a broad range of ways of posing and addressing such questions. Discourse analysis is not a single method, but rather a collection of perspectives united by their focus on spoken and written language use in specific contexts. As an introduction to discourse analytic approaches, this course provides a framework for general concepts central to discourse analysis, including agency, narrative, identity, register, genre, text, intertextuality, indexicality, intersubjectivity, contextualization, and, of course, discourse. Multiple methodologies are described, exemplified, and compared as a way of providing an overview of some of the many options and considerations of interest to researchers studying language, discourse, and sociality.

LLED565G Special Course in Subject Matter Field - SPC C SUBJ MTFLD Sections

Courses in various subject matter fields designed to bring teachers up to date in recent findings in each field.

This advanced research course will focus on assisting students in 1) understanding how different theories inform and guide the data analysis and interpretation, and 2) applying different qualitative data analysis techniques (e.g., coding, memo writing, and data displaying) in various analytical approaches (e.g., content analysis, interview and narrative analysis, visual analysis etc.) in language and literacy research. Students will use real data to engage in practical data analysis exercises. The course assignments will be designed to facilitate interactions among relevant literature, theories, study data, analysis techniques, and writing. Through a discussion of assigned readings and in-class activities, we will address such topics as: the ethics and politics of data analysis, meanings of data analysis and coding, analysis techniques, ways of presenting data, and writing as a method of inquiry. Throughout the course, we will treat writing up qualitative research as a central task and will discuss specific demands for publishing qualitative studies. This course is open to both MA and doctoral students.

Notice for LLED Graduate Students
  1. Students who are unable to register for a particular course should contact their advisors (not the course instructor). Priority in graduate courses are given in the following order:
    • LLED students who require the course immediately to graduate at the next convocation
    • LLED students for whom the course is “core” to their area of study
    • LLED graduate students
    • Graduate students from other departments
  2. LLED 590.064 (seminar section) is offered between 16:30 & 19:30 on alternating Thursdays beginning the 2nd Thursday in September, until the following April. The seminar acts as a support group for students writing their graduating papers. Students may join the course in September or January, and at other times with the instructor’s and advisor’s permission. Prospective 590 students should have the majority of coursework completed (including EDUC 500). The course will work through all aspects of writing a graduating paper, from topic selection and narrowing, through presentation of the final product. Students will have the support of the course instructor who will read and respond to various segments of the paper. As a rule, the student’s advisor acts as the second reader of the final product.Students who wish to complete graduating papers on their own, should discuss plans with advisors and register directly in LLED 590 sections 061, 062, or 063, depending on the estimated time of completion. In all sections, LLED 590 earns 3.0 credits and is graded “pass” when the paper is accepted. Students may complete their papers, and thus the course, at any point during the term.
