Symposium: The Discursive Construction of Reality V

 30 and 31 March 2023

›The Discursive Construction of Reality V - Interdisciplinary Perspectives of Discourse Research in the Sociology of Knowledge‹
Organisation: Prof. Dr. Reiner Keller, Martin Blessinger, Claudia Foltyn and Nicole Lühring (University of Augsburg)


Since 2013 - with a break due to the pandemic - the symposium 'The Discursive Construction of Reality' has been held every two years at the University of Augsburg. It brings together interdisciplinary contributions on discourse analysis in the sociology of knowledge and related fields of discourse and dispositive research. Thus, the symposium explicitly aims at inter- and cross-disciplinary discussions and reflections on ongoing and completed research as well as questions of theory, methodology, and methods. The upcoming symposium aims to continue the interdisciplinary debate on the foundations and applications of discourse research in the sociology of knowledge and subsequent perspectives (such as situation analysis, subjectivation research, or other approaches, such as ethnographic discourse and disposition). The event will take place in attendance with presentations in German and English.


Please note: there are no symposium fees, but to access cold and hot drinks, we kindly ask you to pay a small contribution on-site. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at: .
