Post-foundational discourse analysis, also labelled as the Essex School in Discourse Analysis, has been observed to suffer from considerable methodological deficiencies that limit its applicability in empirical research. This book adds the missing link between post-foundational discourse theory and the methods of empirical research, and in doing so it develops a post-foundational discourse analysis research program. The book offers a structure of the research program, and also explores the methodologization of other discourse analytical approaches, making the book of great value to researchers in all disciplines of social science and human studies.
