This three-day doctoral course is organised by the new doctoral programme in
Interdisciplinary Discourse Studies (InterDisc) at Aalborg University. The
doctoral programme welcomes doctoral students who are interested in studying
discourses in contemporary societies in the broadest sense from
interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and post-disciplinary perspectives.

The format of the course is as follows: the first day will feature lectures by
the invited guests with opportunities for questions and more extended
discussions throughout the day. The morning and afternoon of the second day as well as the morning of the third day will involve smaller group work with each
guest rotating around the groups. Participants will be divided into three
clusters which will work with each guest in turn. Students will be able to
present their research in these clusters. The focus of the cluster format is a problem-based learning (PBL) approach to interdisciplinary methods, topics and
issues inflected by the concerns of the doctoral student participants. The
afternoon of the final day will be given over to general reflections and
discussion based on the work of the first 2½ days. The language of the course
is English.

The course is for doctoral students working with discourse studies in the
broadest sense. Doctoral students from outside Aalborg and Denmark can also
participate. Full and active participation in the course will earn 3 ECTS.

Registration is free for doctoral students registered with a Danish University. Otherwise, there is a registration fee of DKK 1000, which includes refreshments in the breaks, but not lunch or dinner. Accommodation and travel expenses are
the responsibility of the participant.

The deadline for registration is 22nd June 2015. There are a limited number of
places, so if the course is full then a waiting list will be kept.
