Lesley and Matt critically analyse discourse in Denmark

Professor Lesley Jeffries writes:

"Matt Evans and I recently attended the CADAAD (Critical Approaches to Discourse Analysis Across Disciplines) conference in Aalborg, Denmark, and presented on our research into the usage of ‘austerity’ in Hansard and in David Cameron’s speeches. The conference was a lively meeting place for those working on political and ideological aspects of discourse and some new potential collaborations were explored."
