Text and Disciplinary Didactics

Participants in this research group are engaged in research on interpretation and didactic use of texts. Disciplinary reading and writing are the most typical fields of research. Text is broadly defined, and includes research on written and oral texts, as well as various forms of multimodal texts.

National cooperation

Generally, the group is oriented towards text interpretation within the humanities, though participants also apply theories and methodologies from the social sciences. In a number of projects, text analysis is combined with classroom observation and/or interviews with pupils, students and teachers.

The group belongs to the Faculty of Education and International Studies.

    • More about the research

      Typically, discourse theory, narratology, phenomenology, identity theory and psycho-analytic theory provide theoretical underpinning in the projects within the group. The most common methodological approach is qualitative, but some participants also work with various forms of quantitative research designs.

      The group aims at co-operating in smaller sub-groups on various projects.
