ARCP 13: Discourse Unit Global Seminar (2017)

arcp mug logo

Editor: Ian Parker

This special issue of Annual Review of Critical Psychology comprises papers by participants at an international meeting of the Discourse Unit in June 2017. Participants, including these contributors, have, at different points in their careers, intersected with the work of the Discourse Unit since 1990, either as academic colleagues, postgraduate students, postdoctoral visitors, external examiners, or co-authors or co-editors on joint publications. The June 2017 meeting in Manchester University was designed to collectively take stock of a variety of different conceptual, methodological and practical projects, and to discuss the very different directions our work has taken from our first encounters with ‘discourse’ and our meetings together. These papers were gathered together with the primary aim of facilitating this discussion among ourselves, and they together provide a window on the range of work produced in and alongside the Discourse Unit over the last thirty years; other strands of work are represented in other special issues of ARCP.
