SQIP virtual seminar series 2020 - Dec 7th - Current Directions in Discursive Psychology:


  • December 7th, 4PM – 5:30 ET
  • “Current Directions in Discursive Psychology”
  • ORGANIZER: Laura Kilby
  • PRESENTERS: Laura Kilby, Chris McVittie, and Rahul Sambaraju


This Salon shares a collection of papers that highlight some current directions in Discursive Psychology. Our first paper engages a DP approach to explore practical concerns for women, examining how women’s ‘complaining’ about sexual harassment is managed in Indian broadcast media. Our second paper combines Conversation Analysis and DP to examine how speakers deploy talk about thinking during talk-radio debate. Our final paper similarly combines CA/DP to analyse the detail of how racism is contested in current society, examining how contributors contest what is or is not to count as racism in online discussions.
