Realist Reading Group
Our next reading session will be looking at Wendy
Sims-Schouten and Sarah Riley (2018) analysis of making sense of mental health
problems using Critical Realist Discourse Analysis (CRDA). We have also
included a small reading from Margaret Wetherell (2001) which outlines themes
in discourse analysis so we can compare both approaches. Discourse Analysis
(DA) helps us examine ‘the way that we know what we know; where that
information comes from; how it is produced and under what circumstances; whose
interests it might serve; how it is possible to think differently?’ (Mills
2003). Sims-Schouten and Riley (2018) argue that (CRDA) develops the approach
further as it allows researchers to explore not only the discursive but
also the material, embodied and institutional factors involved in
people’s experience of mental health.
24 April from 11:00-12:30, N12c ITTC Building, Plymouth Science Park.
