  • Gavin Kendall Queensland University of Technology
Keywords: critical discourse analysis, interdisciplinarity, methodology


In this interview, Ruth WODAK discusses the beginnings of her career, and what propelled her into critical discourse analysis. She analyses what makes critical discourse analysis "critical", distinguishes criticalness from dogmatism, but expounds upon the relationship between critique and norms. Finally, she discusses how "integrative indisciplinarity" might help us with problems of disciplinary incommensurability. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0702297
