Title Themes in discourse research: The case of Diana
Description
  • <p>This course introduces some of the main themes and issues in discourse analysis. To do this, it looks at extracts from the late Princess Diana interview screened on <i>Panorama</i> in 1995. The interview not only broke the conventions for British Royal appearances, but also reshaped the usual boundaries between public and private for the Royal family. While the focus here may be on Diana's words, the course is not in itself concerned with the Diana phenomenon. And while some of the points discourse analysis makes about the <i>Panorama</i> interview will explore her complex public representation, the course is concerned mainly with what the interview tells us about talk in general, about the construction of identity, about language and how it works, and about the sources of the order and patterning in social interaction.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of Postgraduate study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/social-sciences?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Sociology</a></span>.</p>

  • This unit introduces some of the main themes and issues in discourse research using Martin Bashir's famous interview with Diana, Princess of Wales as a case study. Through this it examines the role of discourse in shaping social interaction and its psychological implications for the study of minds, selves and sense-making.
