Description

The research proposal pursues two main objectives:

  • The comparative analysis on the long run of the development of public discourses on such ecological challenges in the two countries.
  • The combination of two approaches in discourse analysis, namely the pragmatic sociology of controversies by Chateauraynaud (with the use of the Prospéro software) for France and the sociology of knowledge approach to discourse analysis (SKAD) by Reiner Keller for Germany.


On the basis of a combined heuristic approach, the argumentative trajectories of the discussions on the energy supply's transformation in each country will be reconstructed, while comparing their modalities, mechanisms and effects.
