The doctoral programme Interdisciplinary Discourse Studies (InterDisc) at Aalborg University welcomes doctoral students who are interested in studying discourses in contemporary societies in the broadest sense from interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and post-disciplinary perspectives.
The concept discourse includes the many ways in which language is used, such as writing, speech, bodily gestures, music or silence. It also entails a socially constructed perspective, where social actors and actions negotiate and constitute meaning, relations and identities.
Doctoral students are trained in a stimulating local and international research milieu. In this interdisciplinary and enriching learning community, research ideas and problems are shared, and learning follows the principles of Problem Based Learning.
The INTERDISC programme is an inter-departmental collaboration in the Faculty of Humanities.
