2011 promises to be an exciting year for ICDC's Discourse Research Group (DRG). For six years ICDC has successfully brought together academics from AUT and other Universities to discuss and share information about Discourse Analysis.
DRG recently joined with the Faculty of Arts at the University of Auckland to create the Auckland Group for Critical Discourse Analysis (AGCDA).
AGCDA aims to provide a dynamic forum where academics and non-academics alike can discuss the meanings, practice, complexities and significance of engaging with critical discourse.
Its committee members include:
