Language and Discourse

About us

The Oxford Brookes Language and Discourse interdisciplinary group has a specific focus on the relation between discourse, ideology and society.

Our interests range from the production, interpretation and comprehension of discourse; to its mediation through materials, media and technologies; to the role it plays in issues of gender, class, race, identity, politics, culture and literacy.

We have particular expertise in the ways language works in twentieth-century fiction, and the ways that literary style reveals links between cosmopolitan space and youth identity in contemporary black British fiction.
