C-DiT - Centre for Discourses in Transition

  • Kroghstræde 3

    9220 Aalborg Øst




The Centre for Discourses in Transition (C-DiT) was founded in 2011 and is placed in the Department of Culture and Global Studies in the Humanities Faculty of Aalborg University, Denmark. It supplants the previous centre called the Centre for Discourse Studies.

The centre supports research that investigates different perspectives on discourse in our contemporary, turbulent world. In these times of crisis and transition, we need a better appreciation of the role of discourse and practice in creating and managing transition in periods of turbulent social change. The centre is concerned with how to apply discursive approaches to managing transitions democratically, with an emphasis on social and global justice. Furthermore, discourses shape transitions, but also transitions transform discourses, so the centre has an additional focus on tracking how and why discourses themselves are being transformed for a variety of reasons and purposes.

Researchers affiliated to the centre draw upon many of the theories and methods that go under the umbrella of discourse studies, but they are also supplemented by other qualitative methods in both the humanities and the social sciences. Methods that spring to mind include critical discourse analysis, nexus analysis, public consultative discourse analysis, discourse theory, positive discourse analysis, prefigurative discourse analysis, communication for social change, communication activism, and applied global discourse studies.

The centre works closely with the Department of Culture and Global Studies's Discourse and Contemporary Culture doctoral programme, the local Discourse & Society and the Communication and Culture in Professional Settings research groups. The centre is also partnered with a number of other organisations in AAU, including the "Material Discursive Practices" research group in the Department of Communication & Psychology, the interfaculty Centre for Health Communication, and the interfaculty Centre for Mobility and Urban Studies (C-MUS).
